Original Release: (December 4, 2019 2:18 p.m.) 

Just after 5:30 p.m. on December 3, 2019, Baltimore County Police responded to Delvale Avenue at Martell Avenue, 21222 for a pedestrian crash. Officers conducted their investigation and determined that a 2006 Nissan Altima was traveling north on Delvale Avenue when the car drove onto the sidewalk. The car then struck a pedestrian walking on the sidewalk. The pedestrian has been identified as Trinity Lynn Brooks, 15, of the 1800-block of East Avenue, 21222. Trinity was later pronounced deceased by Baltimore County Fire Department personnel.

The driver of the Altima has been taken into custody. More information will be released once the driver has been formally charged by police. 

Ten years after a vehicle was reported stolen in Baltimore City, Baltimore County Police pulled it from the murky waters of a pond in Stansbury Park.

Police received a tip that there may be a vehicle in the pond in Dundalk after it was seen on satellite images. The Baltimore County Police Dive Team responded to the park yesterday and discovered the vehicle, empty, immersed in the pond. After it was pulled from the pond a check of the vehicle identification number revealed that the vehicle, now covered in algae, was a gold 2007 Chevrolet Malibu reported stolen in Baltimore City after it was left running unattended in 2009. The vehicle has not been linked to any other crimes.

An eel was taken into custody after being found inside the vehicle, but he was released after questioning.

Twenty-one people have been displaced from their homes as a result of last night's four-alarm fire in Dundalk.

The fire, which involved four townhomes in the 100 block of Highshire Court, 21222, remains under investigation by BCoPD fire investigators.

Fire officials will conduct a neighborhood "after the fire" walk this evening, October 9, to answer questions from residents about fire safety. Fire personnel will begin the walk around 6 p.m.

BCoFD fire units were dispatched at 10:46 p.m. Tuesday for a working dwelling fire that escalated quickly as fire spread across the rooftops of the townhomes. Commanders subsequently called for second, third and fourth alarms that ultimately brought more than 30 pieces of apparatus to the scene.

Firefighters from Baltimore City and Anne Arundel County responded under mutual aid agreements. BGE and the Maryland Department of the Environment also responded.

First-arriving crews found smoke showing from the front of a townhome and found the rear of the home fully involved.

One civilian was injured and evaluated at the scene , but declined transport to a hospital.

At about 11:07 p.m.,  a "Mayday" was called when a career firefighter fell through the roof. The firefighter self-extricated within minutes and was evaluated by EMS crews at the scene. He was not seriously hurt.

The fire was knocked at 11:29 p.m.

The Red Cross responded to assist the displaced residents.
