A building partially collapsed in Baltimore on Wednesday evening, killing one person and injuring five others. This is reported by CBS Baltimore.
Police said the crash happened shortly after 9 p.m. after the suspected stolen vehicle took off “at a high rate of speed” as officers approached it.
The vehicle struck another vehicle near the intersection, traveled onto the sidewalk and entered a building, causing the vehicle to collapse.
The pedestrian, identified as a 54-year-old man, was pulled from the rubble but died at the scene, police said.
The injured were taken to the hospital, the police said. Their conditions were not immediately known.
First responders did not say whether survivors were in one of the two vehicles when the building collapsed.
A special rescue team went to the scene of the collision to stabilize the building and help with the recovery process, according to the local firefighters union.
At least five medics were also sent to the scene, union representatives said.
Additionally, a Baltimore police investigation team was dispatched, according to authorities.
“We’re going to look at all of the body-worn camera and any other video to see what actually happened that caused the vehicle to take off and cause this crash,” Baltimore Police Deputy Richard Worley told reporters.
