A woman and child were taken by ambulance to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore Friday morning after being injured in a car crash at Hanson Road and Court Square Drive.

It was the second emergency call in 90 minutes for Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company.

At 8:23 a.m., Harford County Emergency Operations 911 Center dispatched Joppa-Magnolia volunteers to the intersection, according to a press release from the fire company. The first arriving unit was from the fire company's Edgewood station; the officer reported a multi-vehicle collision with one person trapped. Rescue crews used the "jaws of life" to extricate an adult female from the driver's seat of the car. A second Joppa-Magnolia paramedic unit was requested because of multiple injuries, according to the release. 

Within 10 minutes, the patient was freed and turned over to paramedics for treatment and transport. The adult female driver and a pediatric passenger were both taken by ambulance to Hopkins in serious, but stable condition. A third patient, from the other vehicle, refused transport.

Hanson Road was closed for about an hour, which caused some delays for school buses in the area. The Harford County Sheriff's Office is investigating the cause of the collision.

That call came just after volunteers returned from putting out a kitchen fire in the 1300 block of Harford Square Drive, P Court, in Edgewood.

At 7:02 a.m., firefighters from Joppa-Magnolia, Kingsville and Abingdon volunteer fire companies and the Aberdeen Proving Ground Fire Department responded to a fire in a two story, end unit townhouse; no smoke or fire was evident when they arrived. When firefighters went inside, they found a fire in the kitchen that had started on the stove and extended to the cabinets. It was quickly extinguished.

Damage is estimated at $2,500. No other homes were damaged. The only resident escaped unharmed.
