Two people sustained minor injuries today after a series of accidents on southbound Interstate 83 near the Timonium exit in Baltimore County, state police said.

The first accident occurred just after 7 a.m. when a Mercedes struck a guard rail and spun out into the median. A fire truck and ambulance responded to the scene.

Shortly thereafter, a Buick slid into the fire truck. Police believe wet road conditions may have been a factor in the crashes.

Police said a firefighter treating the victim of the first accident was slightly injured when a vehicle drifted out of the flow of traffic and brushed into him. The firefighter was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center as a precaution.

The driver in the first crash also was hospitalized with minor injuries. Their names were not immediately available.
