A pedestrian was flown to Shock Trauma this evening with injuries sustained in a crash involving a Baltimore County Fire Department medic unit.

The victim, a man, was in critical condition, but was stable, when he was flown by Maryland State Police helicopter to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.

Dispatchers received a call at 8:24 p.m. for a motor vehicle crash involving the Garrison Fire Station's Medic 19. The crash occurred in the northbound lane of Reisterstown Road, just before the intersection with McDonogh Road.

Medic 19 was returning to the station after delivering a patient to Shock Trauma; it was not in emergency mode. When the crash occurred, the two occupants of the medic -- an EMT who was driving and a paramedic -- immediately got out and provided emergency medical care to the victim. They called for additional medical help, for the police and for the Medevac.

The paramedic and EMT were not injured. A BCoFD Critical Incident Stress Management Team, which provides counseling and care for personnel involved in traumatic incidents, responded.

The Baltimore County Police Crash Team responded and will investigate this crash.
