Baltimore County Police are investigating a crash in Pikesville that injured two people.

Just before 9:30 a.m. this morning, police responded to a Rite Aid store in the 1400 block of Reisterstown Road 21208 for a report of a crash.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that a Toyota 4Runner was backing out of a parking space when it backed into a Chrysler Minivan. The 4Runner then pulled forward, and backed up again but hit a Dodge truck. When the 4Runner went forward again, it drove into the front of the Rite Aid store.

The driver of the 4Runner and a person in the store were transported to Sinai Hospital for treatment of what are believed to be minor injuries.

This incident is under investigation by the Precinct 4/Pikesville traffic team.

Today, Baltimore County Police Officers are wearing mourning bands on their badges in memory of a fallen hero.

Lieutenant Michael Howe, the former commander of the Baltimore County Police Tactical Unit, died on August 11, 2008 as a result of a massive stroke. On August 10, 2008, Lieutenant Howe was with his unit at the scene of a murder-suicide in Precinct 4/Pikesville. When he returned home after that incident, he collapsed, and was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital where he died the next afternoon.
