At 2:09 p.m. this afternoon, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to Reisterstown Road and Pleasant Hill Road for a report of a serious crash. When they arrived on the scene, officers found that there were two vehicles involved.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that a Silver Chevrolet Impala was traveling south-bound on Reisterstown Road approaching Pleasant Hill Road. A black Nissan Altima was traveling north-bound on Reisterstown Road approaching Pleasant Hill Road. The Altima crossed the center line into south-bound traffic and struck the Impala head-on.

The adult female driver of the Chevrolet Impala was transported to Sinai Trauma for treatment. Her current condition is unknown.

The adult male driver of the Nissan Altima was declared deceased at the scene.

Reisterstown Road was closed in both directions between Gwynnbrook Avenue and Enchanted Hills Road while the crash was investigated.

At 4:43 a.m. this morning, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to the Owings Mills Metro Station in the 5000 block of Painters Mill Road 21117 for an unconscious subject. An MTA Police Officer found an unresponsive adult male in the bus loop and called for Baltimore County personnel to respond.

The male was pronounced deceased at the scene. His body was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy. There were no signs of foul play.

The deceased male has been identified as 51-year-old George Howard Russo of the Unit block of Lake Way 21136.

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.

UPDATE (January 29 11:27 a.m.):

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

The truck involved is a 16 foot box truck.

Original release (January 29 10:47 a.m.):

At 10:06 a.m., Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to the area of Hanover Pike (Route 30) and Emory Road for a report of a vehicle into a house.

When personnel arrived on the scene, they found that a commercial vehicle had struck a home in the 15400 block of Hanover Pike and two people were trapped. Both persons have since been extricated. The truck went approximately 15 feet into the home which appears to be vacant.
