BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A member of the Baltimore Fire Department is hurt in a three-car accident right in front of a high school.
Gigi Barnett has more on what happened.
Just feet away from Archbishop Curley High School in Northeast Baltimore, police blocked off roads around 11:30 a.m. Thursday.
City firefighters rushed to an accident, where debris from three different vehicles covered the road.
One of those cars was a fire vehicle. The crash trapped the firefighter.
“It was necessary for firefighters and members on the rescue team to extricate our officer from his vehicle,” said Chief Kevin Cartwright, Baltimore Fire Department.
Medics rushed the veteran firefighter to Shock Trauma. His injuries are not life threatening.
Investigators say he was leaving the scene of a fire, but exactly how this crash happened is still a mystery. The next stop is solving it.
“Another safety officer performed an investigation into its cause. It remains under investigation,” said Cartwright.
The fire department isn’t releasing the name of the firefighter. He is a safety officer with the department.
