Three people were taken to area hospitals Wednesday after they were injured in separate accidents in Harford County.

In the first accident, a 54-year-old man, a painter, was hurt in a fall from a ladder in the 3600 block of My Ladys View Court near Jarrettsville around 11:15 a.m. Wednesday, according to Rich Gardiner, spokesman for the Harford County Volunteer Fire & EMS Association.

He had no further detail on the incident; however, monitored Harford County emergency radio broadcasts said the man was being flown by Maryland State Police Medevac to a regional trauma center.

Emergency crews were also responding to a possible electrocution on Griffith Place in Riverside, shortly before noon, and were treating a 33-year-old male roofer, Gardiner said. The man was carrying a ladder, which touched an electric line.

The incident is being investigated by the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health, according to a spokesperson for the agency.

Monitored Harford County emergency broadcasts said the man was in cardiac arrest. Gardiner later said he was taken to a local hospital.

Shortly after 2 p.m., a 28-year-old woman was flown to a local trauma center with multi-system trauma, Gardiner said. The woman fell in the 400 block of Chestnut Hill Road in Forest Hill.

No further details on that incident were available.
