Seven people were injured after a five-car crash on Route 40 near Catonsville on Sunday morning, officials said.
Their injuries, which ranged from minor to serious, were not life-threatening, police said Monday.
The crash, which happened around 11:30 a.m. at St. Agnes Lane, left at least one volunteer firefighter injured, said Baltimore County Fire Department spokesperson Tim Rostkowski.
That person, who had been driving in a Lansdowne Volunteer Fire Company SUV, was taken to a hospital for treatment, Rostkowski said. Six other people were transported to nearby hospitals as well, said Baltimore County Police Department spokesperson Danielle Moore.
Police say the crash happened after a motorist, who was driving eastbound on Baltimore National Pike in a 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe, tried to turn right onto the highway in the path of a 2020 Nissan. In an effort to avoid a collision, both drivers swerved. The Nissan hit two other cars, and the Chevrolet struck one other, before spinning into the Nissan, which struck a utility pole.
