A baby was delivered stillborn this morning after its nine-months-pregnant mother survived a two-car collision Friday night in Towson, Baltimore County police said.
The mother, who was driving a Saturn when the collision occurred at around 11:15 p.m., and her passenger suffered non-life threatening injuries. The two were taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, said Cpl. John Wachter, a Baltimore County Police Department spokesman.
"The baby, though, was delivered stillborn" at 3:24 a.m. Saturday at the hospital, Wachter said. "That is why we are calling it a fatal."
The driver of the second car—a Hyundai—was taken to GBMC.
Names and other identifying information for the injured people were not available, Wachter said.
The two vehicles collided at Charles Street and Gatehouse Drive in Towson.
"The Hyundai was traveling northbound on Charles Street, approaching Gatehouse Drive. The Saturn was on Gatehouse Drive and was going to make a left-hand-turn to go southbound on Charles Street," Wachter said. That's where they collided.
A Baltimore County Fire Department spokesman said the female accident victim who was pregnant and a passenger were both trapped in their vehicle.
More medic units were called to help get them out by 11:34 p.m.
