UPDATE: (January 29, 1:30 p.m.)

Two patients involved in a two-vehicle crash in which a commercial truck ran into a house in Upperco have been flown to the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center injuries that are serious but probably not life-threatening.

Police and Fire units were dispatched to the 15400 block of Hanover Pike (Md. 30), near the Sportsman's Hall roller rink, at 10:06 a.m. The Arcadia Volunteer Fire Co. was first on the scene and found that a large commercial box truck had crashed into a home that sits close to the road. One man, the driver, was trapped in the truck.

The driver of the second vehicle, a Honda Prelude, also was trapped. At 10:14 a.m., fire officials called for a heavy rescue assignment, and within minutes crews were able to free both men from the vehicles. The truck driver was extricated at 10:27 a.m.; the driver of the car was freed at 10:33 a.m.

The BCoPD Crash Team investigation has begun. The truck was traveling north on Hanover Pike and the car was traveling south on Hanover Pike. The chain of events is unclear at this early stage of the investigation. 

BCoFD hazmat crews removed the fuel from the vehicle to prevent spillage. BCoFD's Urban Search and Rescue Unit was assigned to shore up the seriously damaged house in an effort to prevent a dangerous collapse. County building inspectors will determine whether the home should be declared unsafe.

Route 30 remains closed at this time. Motorists should avoid the area.

Twenty-two pieces of fire equipment, including units from Carroll County, responded to this call.

Two people are being flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center by Maryland State Police medivac helicopter. Their current conditions are unknown.
