Hope everyone is ok!
Good heavens....that's a horrible scene.
Wow!!! Praying for those involved.
How many more accidents have to happen at this location before they put a RED LIGHT??? I cringe everytime I approach this area...
Omg this looks horrible

This is the second time in less than a month that this spot has had an accident that required aviation, and individuals were trapped in the car. I contacted SHA and senator JB Jennings, and SHA continues to view the intersection as not dangerous enough for a light. Please contact SHA until something is done. Also, Senator JB Jennings keeps records of accounts to further support potential legislation. I live in the neighborhood nearby and use the intersection often, and I hope more people see the danger and petition those who can make policy change. Praying for those involved.
Horrible intersection. Needs an actual light to prevent this.
I feel like I am taking my life in my hands every time I cross there.
I don't think it's the intersections fault. People need to pay to attention get off their phones slow down be patient kind and respectful. Ooo and maybe sober and drug free. Prayers being lifted for all involved.
This is a terrible intersection, there needs to be a light! Prayers to the families🙏
So scary! I cross that intersection all the time and it is horrible!
😉 election year is a good time to push but David Marks is Baltimore County...reach out to the office of Barry Glassman. They are very receptive to calls.
New Cut is bad also
2 accidents in same day here yesterday both cars rolled
Prayers for all. I used to li e off Reckord Rd there were days I would turn on Wilgis Rd instead of Reckord to avoid getting rear ended! My turn signal was on before I went down the hill towards Reckord Rd but they still didn't pay attention! That was 50 years ago! Good luck getting a traffic light!
Thanks to our dedicated volunteers at 48! Prayers for your safety every day!
Thank you KINGSVILLE VOLUNTEER FIRE COMPANY. Traffic study needed at this area - too many accidents.
I saw 3 in 3 weeks there so far this summer!!! I go through this intersection many times during the week. I think I’ll make some phone calls this week! I hope the powers that be listen. But I fear it’s not a big enough problem for them. 😢
Hard to believe that anyone survived. Prayers everyone is ok. It’s like a mountain speedway in that area!

#FlashFloodWatch now in effect through Wednesday afternoon for our region.
Showers and thunderstorms are expected to increase in coverage and intensity early today. This pattern will remain in place through Wednesday, with multiple rounds of torrential rainfall possible. Given saturated soil from this weekend`s rainfall, repetitive heavy rain may result in flash flooding. Urban areas, locations along small streams and creeks, and poor drainage areas are most vulnerable to flash flooding.
Swiftwater and Dive Rescue Teams from Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department, Kingsville Volunteer Fire Company, Middle River Volunteer Ambulance Rescue Company, Inc. and Texas Station 17 have continued to respond to vehicles stranded in high and fast moving flood water overnight and into this morning. Streams, creeks, runs and rivers throughout Baltimore County have overflowed their banks flooding nearby roads and trapping vehicles that attempted to pass through the water.
Some of the incident locations since last night include:
• Falls Rd and Benson Mill Rd (Blackrock Run)
• Buckingham Rd and Latham Rd (Gwynns Falls)
• Gwynndale Ave and Virginia Ave (Gwynns Falls)
• Upper/Lower Glencoe Rd and Glencoe Rd (Big Gunpowder Falls)
Some of these locations included rescues from multiple vehicles, including a school bus with child.
Each year, more deaths occur due to flooding than from any other thunderstorm related hazard. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that over half of all flood-related drownings occur when a vehicle is driven into hazardous flood water. The next highest percentage of flood-related deaths is due to walking into or near flood waters. People underestimate the force and power of water. Many of the deaths occur in automobiles as they are swept downstream. Of these drownings, many are preventable, but too many people continue to drive around the barriers that warn you the road is flooded. A mere 6 inches of fast-moving flood water can knock over an adult. It takes just 12 inches of rushing water to carry away a small car, while 2 feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles. It is NEVER safe to drive or walk into flood waters.
Turn around, don't drown!
