Question of the Day
A Randallstown woman pulled in front of a school bus yesterday morning resulting in a crash that injured 13 children, Baltimore County police said.
Cpl. Mike Hill said Martha Barnes, 21, pulled out in front of the school bus driving on Windsor Mill Road though no charges have been filed. He said no drugs or alcohol were involved.
Miss Barnes was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore with serious but not life-threatening injuries. She was released around 3 p.m.
The children were taken to area hospitals and were released about noon.
The bus was on its way to McDonough Day Camp with 33 children aboard.
Boys, 11 and 12, accused of arson
Two boys, 11 and 12, set fire to homes under construction in a suburban subdivision, destroying two of the structures, authorities said.
The boys, whose names were not released, were charged as juveniles with arson, the Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office said.
The three-alarm blaze at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday brought more than 50 firefighters from Frederick and Washington counties to the scene. It took them 30 minutes to bring the fire under control, the fire marshal said.
Fire crews also put out a fire at another unoccupied house around the corner from the two houses.
The heat melted the vinyl siding on two other homes more than 100 feet away, the fire marshal said.
