Baltimore City Police say a green Acura is responsible for the crash. Witnesses say it hit the gold sedan so hard it flipped over another car, shredding it apart. Three people were in the car, including a child.
“The female was taken to an area hospital in serious condition. Right now, she is undergoing surgery and she is listed in critical condition,” Echevarria said.
Just moments after the accident, witnesses tell WJZ nearby neighbors rushed to pull the child to safety from the mangled car.
