A man is in critical condition after being pinned and “kind of entangled” under two vehicles at a car dealership in Owings Mills, Baltimore County officials said Thursday.
Around 10:34 a.m., crews were dispatched to the Heritage Chevrolet in the 11200 block of Reisterstown Road responding to a call of someone trapped between two vehicles. Officials said fire department crews were using airbags to lift the vehicles and free the man.
Fire Department spokeswoman Elise Armacost said later in the day that the man, believed to be an employee of the dealership, became pinned between vehicles while trying to stop one from rolling. .
Armacost said there was some kind of “utility truck” in the parking lot and that vehicle began to drift. The employee ran to try and stop the truck from drifting, but got pinned between the truck and an SUV that was on the lot, she said.
“He ended up getting pushed underneath those vehicles and kind of entangled,” Armacost said.
Fire officials inflated air bags under the vehicles to lift them and then extricate the man, Armacost said. Maryland State Police flew the patient to a local hospital.
