UPDATE

JOPPA, MD. (Sept. 14, 2014) —  Two more people have died on Joppa and Edgewood roadways, making four since Friday.
Just before 8:00 pm on September 13, the Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company (JMVFC) was alerted to a pedestrian struck by a vehicle in the 1700 block of Trimble Road in Edgewood.  When Firefighters and Paramedics arrived, they found an adult male who was in grave condition.  He was quickly packaged and taken by JMVFC paramedic unit to the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center where he later succumbed to his injuries.  The Harford County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the collision.
Not too long after leaving the collision on Trimble Road, the JMVFC was sent to Hanson Road and state route 24 in Edgewood for a motor vehicle collision.  A pediatric patient was taken by JMVFC paramedic unit to the Johns Hopkins Children’s Trauma Center in stable condition.  Maryland State Police are investigating this collision.
At 1:16 am on September 14, the JMVFC was sent to Philadelphia Road, state route 7, and Gunpowder Ridge Road for a motor vehicle collision.  Upon arrival, Firefighters and Paramedics found a collision involving a motorcycle.  The injuries to the motorcyclist were severe and the adult male was pronounced dead at the scene.  Philadelphia Road was closed while the Maryland State Police investigated the collision.
These two fatalities bring the total number of people killed on Joppa and Edgewood Roads this weekend to four.  We initially reported on September 12 that one person was transported to University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in grave condition.  We have since been notified that the patient was pronounced dead at the hospital.  The adult male was a motorcyclist involved in a collision on Mountain Road, state route 152, at Jerusalem Road, near Mountain Branch Golf Course in Joppa.  This was the second fatality on Mountain Road in less than two hours and less than a mile apart.  The first was at Mountain Road and Old Mountain Road South.  At that collision, one person was killed and two others were taken to area hospitals.
