Student & Driver Hurt After Car Crashes Into Pine Grove Middle School

PARKVILLE, Md. (WJZ) -- A student was injured after a car crashed through the wall of a classroom Thursday morning at Pine Grove Middle School in Parkville.

Officers were called to the school on Belair Road about 8:40 a.m. in response to a vehicle that had crashed into the building, Baltimore County police said.

Upon arrival, officers found the driver inside the vehicle, and he was taken to an area hospital with injuries that aren't considered life-threatening.

The building was briefly evacuated while first responders cleared the scene, and a student was checked out for minor injuries, Baltimore County Public Schools said.

Students were allowed to return to class shortly after 9 a.m., according to the school district, which said that "all students and staff are safe."

There's no word yet on the cause of the crash, which remains under investigation.

The school district said teams from its Office of School Climate and Safety are at the school to provide support for students and staff.

Calling the incident "upsetting and scary," the district is allowing parents to pick up their child or children immediately. Parents are instructed to call the main office at 443-809-5270.
