Three injured in accidents in Jarrettsville, Riverside, Forest Hill

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.
