1 killed in truck crash at Lexington Market

One elderly man was killed and three people injured at Lexington Market around noon Saturday when a pickup truck went out of control and plowed into a crowd, a city fire official said.

Baltimore City Fire Chief Kevin Cartwright said that a woman driving a white Ford F-150 apparently had a seizure while driving in the parking lot off North Eutaw Street, causing the truck to hit a crowd of about 200 people. She was taken to University Hospital for treatment of a possible seizure. Her female passenger was not hurt, Cartwright said.

One man was pronounced dead at the scene, while another man who was trapped under the truck was seriously injured and taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Also taken to Shock Trauma was a woman in the crowd who was found unconscious and not breathing, Cartwright said. A man who suffered a knee injury was being treated at University Hospital, also part of the University of Maryland Medical Center downtown.

Cartwright said he was not able to provide names or ages of the victims.
