An 81-year-old Towson woman was struck by a Jeep Grand Cherokee at the intersection of Frederick Road and Egges Lane around noon Tuesday, police spokeswoman Louise Rogers-Feher said.
At 12:15 p.m. Baltimore County Police were dispatched to 754 Frederick Road for the incident, she said.
The Catonsville Fire Department, the office of First District Councilman Tom Quirk and the district office of U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings are all located at that address.
“It was what we consider a low speed crash. He was not going fast," Rogers-Feher said of the Cherokee's driver.
The woman was airlifted from the scene in a police helicopter to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center and Rogers-Feher said she is in critical condition.
"The person is a Priority 1 which is pretty high on the list, and the State Police Trooper 1 [helicopter] was called," Rogers-Feher said.
The Baltimore County Fire Department is working with the Police Crash Team to investigate the incident, Rogers-Feher said.
"Obviously this is a nasty little scene," Armacost said. "Whenever you have a serious crash or accident the Crash Team is brought in.
"They are the experts on crash scenes on something like this where a pedestrian was struck," she said. "It has to be real bad [for them to be called]."
Rogers-Feher said Tuesday afternoon that the incident is still under investigation.
