Eight people, including four volunteer EMS personnel, were injured Saturday night in a Dundalk crash involving a volunteer medic unit and an SUV.

All four medic personnel were members of the Lansdowne Volunteer Fire Co.; Lansdowne was filling in for the Wise Avenue Volunteer Fire Co.

The most seriously injured patient, one of the Lansdowne EMS providers, had to be cut from the vehicle by Fire rescue personnel and was transported to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Unit. She suffered serious but non-lifethreatening injuries. The other three EMS providers -- two women and a man -- were released last night from the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

The civilian patients, including two children, were transported to local hospitals with non-threatening.injuries.

The crash occurred at Wise Avenue and Lynch Road at about 8 p.m.; the medic crew was en route to an emergency call, a nearby motor vehicle accident. The medic unit was not carrying a patient at the time of the crash. Other EMS crews were routed to the call to which the medic was responding as soon as the crash at Wise and Lynch occurred.
