December 22, 2013 - Baltimore County Fire Department units were dispatched at 4:35 a.m. to a reported motor vehicle crash on the Outer Loop of Interstate 695 between exits 23 & 22 with unknown patient status (Box 14-61). While responding via the Inner Loop, Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company Squad 322 advised that they saw a passenger car wedged underneath the rear of a tractor-trailer and requested a “Heavy Rescue” box be dispatched. Upon arrival, units confirmed an Audi sedan had struck the rear of the trailer and the driver was trapped and deceased and canceled responding units other than BCoFD Engine 14. Following the Maryland State Police crash investigation, a heavy-duty wrecker from Sullivan’s Towing was special-called to assist in stabilizing the tractor-trailer while the Squad crew stabilized the car and used a winch to pull it from underneath the trailer. Firefighters then extricated the victim from the wreckage and turned the victim over to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. Officials believe the car first impacted the tractor-trailer in the area of the Interstate 83 exit and was dragged for approximately 1,000 feet to just before the Greenspring Avenue exit.
