Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD MARYLAND -

Two crashes 10 min­utes apart shut down both di­rec­tions of Mary­land Route 700 in Mid­dle River on Fri­day af­ter­noon, ac­cord­ing to the Mary­land State High­way Ad­min­is­tra­tion. The first ac­ci­dent oc­curred at 2:49 p.m. at Mary­land 700 and Wind­lass Drive, ac­cord­ing to po­lice and fire depart­ment of­fi­cials. The crash in­volved three ve­hi­cles and led to a mi­nor fire, Bal­ti­more County Fire Depart­ment spokes­woman Elise Ar­ma­cost said. Two peo­ple were taken to a hos­pi­tal with non-life-threat­en­ing in­juries, she said. The sec­ond ac­ci­dent, at 2:59 p.m., was less than half a mile away on Mary­land 700 at Mid­dle River Road. A Bal­ti­more County po­lice of­fi­cer re­spond­ing to the first crash struck a school bus car­ry­ing stu­dents from Parkville High School, Bal­ti­more County po­lice spokes­woman Of­fi­cer Jennifer Peach said. The school bus then struck an­other ve­hi­cle, whose driver was not in­jured, Peach said. Five stu­dents were on the bus at the time, and first re­spon­ders were eval­u­at­ing seven to­tal bus oc­cu­pants. One stu­dent was also taken to a hos­pi­tal for eval­u­a­tion for trou­ble breath­ing, Peach said. And a po­lice of­fi­cer was trans­ported to an area hos­pi­tal with mi­nor in­juries, Ar­ma­cost said.
