The driver of this SUV and her passenger suffered minor injuries.A 48-year-old woman was charged this morning with failure to reduce speed to avoid a collision after she drove her SUV into the Baltimore County Drumcastle Center in Precinct 6, Towson.

The crash occurred around 7:40 a.m. An investigation by the Towson precinct shows that the driver of the Toyota RAV4, Hiwot Arbi, of the 900 block of Gladway Road, 21220, was driving through the Drumcastle parking lot at a high rate of speed, preparing to park, when she struck an unoccupied parked vehicle – a gold Chevrolet Blazer. The Blazer rotated and struck another unoccupied parked vehicle. The Toyota continued at an apparent high rate of speed, struck the curb and became airborne before crashing through the building.

Arbi and a female passenger suffered minor injuries but refused transport to local hospitals.

One woman who was inside the building at the time of the crash – a 45-year-old county Social Services worker – suffered non life-threatening injuries and was transported by ground to Sinai Hospital.

County building engineers who responded to inspect the Drumcastle Center, 6401 York Road, found the damage superficial.

About 860 state and county employees work at the Drumcastle Center, but only a fraction of these employees had arrived at work when the crash occurred. The building was evacuated immediately following the crash. Employees and visitors were allowed to return to the building as soon as the Toyota was removed from the building and the building deemed safe by inspectors. The section of the building in the immediate vicinity of the hole caused by the crash remains off limits, pending the repair.

The next edition of “Police Report,” the Baltimore County Police Department’s cable TV program, runs through August 31.

The opening segment focuses on services provided by the Baltimore County 911 Center. Mr. Jason Bivens, Assistant Chief, explains how the 911 Center functions and provides tips to help with quick assistance when you call.

The topic in the second segment is the Towson Precinct. Captain Jay Landsman, commander of the Towson Precinct, discusses the various operational units in the precinct, the daily challenges his officers face, and the many partnerships he has established in the Towson area.

The program airs five days a week on Cable Channel 25, only in Baltimore County. The times are:

  • Monday: 10:30 a.m., 3:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.
  • Tuesday: 9 a.m., 3:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.
