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.
