A pedestrian was hospitalized in critical condition after being struck by a Baltimore City Fire Department battalion chief heading to another incident in a departmental SUV Sunday night, officials said.
The pedestrian, whose identity was not released, was hit about 8:30 p.m. in the 1700 block of East North Avenue, said Detective Donny Moses, a Baltimore Police Department spokesman.
The battalion chief, who was driving with his vehicle’s lights and sirens on, was taken to a hospital for an evaluation and released, fire department spokeswoman Blair Adams said.
The name of the battalion chief was not released.
The crash remains under investigation by the police department’s crash team, Moses said.
