Baltimore County police were investigating a connection between a stabbing and a traffic accident in Owings Mills on Thursday night.

Shortly before 8 p.m., police responded to the intersection of Owings Mills Boulevard and Gwynbrook Avenue for reports of a stabbing and found a woman with serious stab wounds, police said.

They then found five people injured in multiple vehicles that had been involved in an accident at the nearby intersection of Owings Mills Boulevard and Crondall Lane, police said.

Following an investigation, police concluded a man "got into some kind of altercation" with the woman near Gwynbrook Avenue, stabbed her, then "jumped in his car and fled down Owings Mills Boulevard," said Lt. Robert McCullough, a police spokesman.

The man then caused the accident at Crondall Lane, in which he was the most severely injured, police said.

The woman and the man were transported to Maryland Shock Trauma with what appeared to be life-threatening-injuries, McCullough said.

Four other people involved in the traffic accident were transported to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

None had been identified late Thursday.
