Baltimore County Police are investigating a crash in Dundalk today that left at least seven people injured.

Just after 1 p.m., police and fire personnel responded to the Trendz Hair Salon in the 7600 block of German Hill Road 21222 for a report of a crash. When personnel arrived on the scene, they discovered that a car had gone through the front of the salon.

The preliminary investigation has indicated that a Ford Crown Victoria was backing out of a parking space. It then went forward, up onto the curb, and through the front of the hair salon.

The women that was driving the vehicle and at least six women in the hair salon were injured. One woman inside the salon was briefly trapped. The injured women were taken to area hospitals for treatment. All are expected to survive.

This crash is under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Department Crash Team. That investigation is expected to take several weeks.
