Woman Struck, Hospitalized After White Marsh Parking Lot Fight

Police believe the incident may have begun over a fight for a parking spot.

A woman was hospitalized Friday night after police say she was struck by a vehicle outside the Avenue at White Marsh. 

At about 8:25 p.m. police received a call reporting a fight over a parking spot near Staples at the Honeygo Boulevard shopping center. Within minutes, police received several more calls reporting that an adult female had been struck by a vehicle and that the vehicle had fled the scene, according to Cpl. John Wachter, a Baltimore County police spokesman. 

The woman was taken by ambulance with non-life threatening injuries to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Wachter said. 

No further information on the suspect vehicle or victim was available as of 9:30 p.m. The investigation into the incident and possible connection between the fight and hit-and-run is ongoing, he said.

I have a Handicap parking hang-tag. During Christmas shopping season I parked in a 'regular' parking space was yelled at by another shopper to '...park that car in the handicap space and stop wasting parking space !'. NOW that is a switcheroo ! Thank Goodness I rarely need the Handicap hang tag.

Yeah. Usually it's people either using the handicap parking spots without a tag, or simply someone using someone else's handicap tag for themselves.

It is routine that various emergency rooms go on yellow alert, which causes medics to skip that hospital. Typically, it happens because there are no staffed beds in the ER, or there are no available beds on the floor. It happens daily, and current status can be seen at http://www.miemss.org/chats3/Default.aspx?hdRegion=3 The "franklin scare" is a thing of the past. I worked there for a very short time as a contractor right after they moved in to the tower, and I have been treated and admitted through the ER less than a year ago. They do very well there.
