Members of the Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company had a busy morning on Wednesday, responding to three incidents in Harford and Baltimore counties.
Officials said at 7:47 a.m., firefighters and paramedics from the company responded to Old Joppa Road and Jerusalem Road, in Joppa, for a crash involving two vehicle, with one person having minor injuries. Officials said the patient was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Trauma Center in stable condition, and the Harford County Sheriff's Office is investigating the collision.
Shortly after that accident, the company was requested by Baltimore County to respond to another accident on Glen Arm Road, just west of Harford Road in Glen Arm. There, firefighters assisted crews from the Kingsville Volunteer Fire Company in extricating a person who was trapped in an overturned vehicle. The victim was attended to by Baltimore County paramedics, and the patient's condition was not immediately known. Baltimore County police are investigating that collision.
Finally, while returning from Baltimore County, the Joppa company was asked to go to Mountain Road at Interstate-95 for a report of a tractor trailer leaking diesel fuel. The Harford County Emergency Operations Hazardous Materials Team and the Maryland Department of the Environment's Emergency Response Division responded as well, and the Joppa crew contained the fuel that was on the ground until hazmat crews arrived.
