BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police are investigating after a SUV was pushed into Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, trapping a man in a wheelchair underneath.

Police believe an Maryland Transit Administration mobility bus hit the back of the SUV, causing the vehicle to become stuck between the bus and a wall just after 10 a.m.

The SUV then hit the man who was in a motorized wheelchair, pinning him under the vehicle for almost an hour, according to a witness.

Baltimore City firefighters rescued the man and he was taken to the Sinai emergency room, according to a spokesperson for LifeBridge Health at Sinai. The driver of the SUV was also taken to the ER.

An MTA official said the man was listed in stable condition, while the driver of the vehicle and two people in the MTA van sustained minor injuries.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
