August 17, 2011|By Mary Gail Hare, The Baltimore Sun

A two-vehicle collision Wednesday propelled a privately owned ambulance into a Randallstown home and sent two people to Sinai Hospital. No one in the house at the intersection of Marriottsville and Winands roads was injured.

At about 7:30 a.m., Baltimore County Police, responding to a cellphone call, found a Freestate Ambulance had run into the side of a home. The ambulance, which was not carrying a patient, had likely been side swiped by a car before it rammed the home, police said.

Investigators have not determined how many people were in the house at the time. Police were awaiting the results of a home inspection to assess the damage to the dwelling before removing the vehicle.

The two unidentified victims, whose injuries were not life-threatening, were riding in the vehicles, police said. Investigators did not say whether those injured were the drivers. No further details were available.
