A woman was killed, a child and a man were injured after their car collided with two MTA Maryland Light Rail trains in downtown Baltimore, officials said.
At around 7:30 a.m., officials said, two light rail trains were coming in opposite directions when a car traveling east on Mulberry Street collided with the light rail.
Firefighters are still at the scene on Howard Street, where the car – a gray sedan – gets trapped between the two train cars.
Three people were trapped by the car – a woman, a 30-year-old man, and a seven-year-old child.
Officials said that the man and child were taken to local hospitals with non-life-threatening wounds, but that the woman died at the scene.
The operator of the light rail for the southbound train was also taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
“In order to get the occupants out of the car, the adult male and the child … the Fire Department, with the help of the Police Department, had to get them out of the vehicles,” said Beau Blair Adams, Beau Blair Adams.
“The fire department is on site and they have to bring in extra equipment to extract that vehicle that’s sandwiched between the two trains,” Baltimore Police Detective Nicole Monroe said.
At the moment, there are no other reports of injuries from the light rail passengers.
