One person was transported to a regional trauma center following a two-vehicle accident in Joppa Thursday morning, Maryland State Police said.
At 7:44 a.m., the Harford County 9-1-1 Center received calls for a motor vehicle collision, with injuries, at eastbound Route 40 and Joppa Road, according to a media release from the Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Co.
Joppa-Magnolia sent three fire units, three medic units and two chief officers with a total of 16 volunteers, according to the release. First arriving units at 7:48 a.m. confirmed there had been a two-vehicle collision in the intersection.
One patient was transported by a JMVFC medic unit to Johns Hopkins Bayview Trauma Center in Baltimore in serious, but stable condition, according to the release. One other patient refused transport.
All lanes of eastbound Route 40 were closed so paramedics could tend to the injured and firefighters could secure the scene, according to the fire company. The road was reopened at 8:10 a.m.
Maryland State Police from the Bel Air Barrack responded to the accident. Shortly before 11 a.m., a duty officer at the barrack said no additional information was available about the accident.
