One person was critically injured and two more were seriously injured after a car struck a telephone pole and crashed into a house in Perry Hall on Wednesday night, Baltimore County officials said.
Baltimore County Police officers got a call around 7 p.m. of a motor vehicle crash in the 9000 block of Belair Road, said Sgt. Gladys Brown, a police spokeswoman.
Firefighters and EMS arrived on the scene, too, finding a crumpled car that had come to rest against a house.
Capt. Leonard Stewart, a fire department spokesman, said the vehicle was traveling south on Belair Road, struck a telephone pole and then crashed into the corner of the home.
Firefighters had to extricate the three occupants from the car, Stewart said. One patient was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview in critical condition while the two others were taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital with serious injuries.
Belair Road was shut down between Joppa Road and Soth Avenue, as utility crews made repairs, Brown said. That segment of the road was expected to be closed for several hours.
Brown said the police department is conducting an investigation into the incident. Police officers scanned the wreck with flashlights around 10 p.m.
