Two killed, 10 hurt when car smashes into MTA bus in Southwest Baltimore, police say

Two people were killed and 10 others injured when a car crashed into an MTA bus on Friday afternoon in Southwest Baltimore, police said.

The bus was pulling out from a light rail station, police said, and turning onto Patapsco Avenue when the crash happened around 4:30 p.m.

Police said they believe a Hyundai sedan was traveling southbound on the 800 block of Patapsco Ave. when it collided with the bus.

Two people in the car were killed, and two others in the vehicle were hospitalized. Eight people on the bus — including the driver — were hospitalized.

Police say the injuries are not life-threatening.

Keijah Gibson was on the bus. She said she didn’t see the crash but felt the bus shudder from the impact. She said her leg was bruised, and she saw several people being wheeled into an ambulance.

Gerald Farmer, who was also on the bus, said his neck hurt after the crash, but he was thankful it wasn’t worse.

The impact, he said, “rocked me back and forward.”

Detectives from the Baltimore Police CRASH Team were investigating the incident, with MTA police assisting.
