Callers to Metro Crime Stoppers:
At 6:02 p.m., Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to the Royal Farm store in the 600 block of Southwick Drive in Towson for a report of a vehicle that had gone through the front of the store.
The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that for unknown reasons, a Subaru Impreza drove through the front of the Royal Farm store, striking a 46-year-old female customer inside the business, pinning her against a counter.
The female was transported to St Joseph’s Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
The 60-year-old female driver of the Subaru did not display any signs of impairment.
While the face of the store was severely damaged, the building structure was determined to be sound by Fire Department supervisors. Building inspectors were not requested to respond.
This incident is being investigated by Precinct 6 patrol personnel.
Baltimore County Police are investigating an accident at Bosley Avenue and Chesapeake Avenue in Towson that left one person with life-threatening injuries.
At 12:24 p.m. today, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to Bosley Avenue and Chespeake Avenue in Towson for a report of an automobile accident with injuries. When firefighters arrived on the scene, they found one person trapped in a vehicle. That person was later extricated from the vehicle.
The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that a Nissan Altima was stopped on southbound Bosley Avenue waiting to turn left onto Chespeake Avenue. A Nissan Maxima was traveling northbound Bosley Ave at a high rate of speed in the far right lane approaching Chesapeake Avenue. Another vehicle that was ahead of the Nissan Maxima had stopped before making a right turn onto Chesapeake Avenue. The light for Bosley Avenue turned yellow and the Altima began to make the left turn. The Maxima then switched lanes to get around the vehicle turning right onto Chesapeake Avenue, locked its brakes, slid into the intersection, and struck the Altima in the rear passenger side. The right rear passenger of the Altima had to be extricated from the vehicle.
The 35-year-old female right rear passenger in the Nissan Altima had not been wearing a seat belt and was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center with life-threatening injuries. The 62-year-old male driver and the 55-year-old female front passenger of the Altima were transported to GBMC for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
The 24-year-old driver of the Nissan Maxima was taken to St Joseph's Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
This incident remains under active investigation and any charges placed will depend on the outcome of that investigation.
