The accident took place late Wednesday morning on Interstate 95 between Maryland Route 152 and Maryland Route 24 in Joppa.

A woman was temporarily trapped in her car after a serious accident on Interstate I-95 in Joppa late Wednesday morning.

Around 11 a.m. police and emergency personnel from the Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company were called to the scene of an accident on northbound I-95 between Maryland Route 152, or Mountain Road, and Maryland Route 24, according to a release from the fire company.

Firefighters used "the jaws of life" to remove the driver's side door of one of the cars, the release states. The woman was successfully rescued from the car within about 15 minutes and taken to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air for treatment. She was in stable condition at the time.

The other driver, an adult man, was also taken to Upper Chesapeake for treatment, according to the release.

Abingdon volunteer firefighters also assisted at the scene.

I'm so sorry to hear that someone passed away (if it's true). I didn't expect that after reading the article. It indicates she was in stable condition. The accident at 24/Wheel Rd. was very sad as well. Makes you nervous every time you get behind the wheel, doesn't it?

I was in Harford County yesterday and saw not only this accident going home, but saw the one on 24 and Wheel Rd when driving my mom to an appointment at UC. I heard someone may have died in that crash as well. I pray for all involved in both of those crashes and I Thank God that my vehicle wasn't in the way and involved. I almost don't want to even drive in HC anymore because of all the accidents I see and hear about. However, my mom and son and family live there so I will have to continue my travel there. People please slow down and pay attention! There is no where you have to be so bad that you can't slow down some, or stop for the red light. Most of these accidents are caused by selfish, senseless acts, all because the person causing it seems to think they are the only one on the road. You are not only affecting just yourself when you are using bad driving judgement, but there is a trickle down effect that hurts many people. Instead of getting to your destination quicker you have now caused yourself to not make it at all. You may not value your own life enough to drive safely, but think of others. You are not alone on that road or highway when you are driving. And put those cell phones DOWN!

All as far as I know the crash on 924 and wheel rd was the fatal , this crash on 95 isn't, that is based off of the news report. And to volunteermom2 if the pt is in that bad condition and needs medical attention ASAP ems will transport to nearest hospital to try to get him or her stabilized then a helicopter or ambulance will transport him/her to appropriate facility as they feel necessary. I know this cause I am a FF/EMT.

I apologize, I commented on the wrong story. I knew the woman who lost her life at the Rte 24/Wheel Rd accident. I'm hoping everyone is okay with all these crazy accidents and agree with JR stop acting like your appt/job/activity is more damn important than your or others lives. Please drive responsibly.

I apologize, I commented on the wrong story. Too many damn accidents happening, it's getting ridiculous people!!

Well said, BD1258

Thanks, Steven. I just happened to know the woman who died at the 924/Wheel accident, so I'm a bit hurt and sad for her family. (I commented on the wrong accident news report) I hate to say it, but it just seems whenever someone's taken to UC that needs critical help they don't make it; a lot of citizens feel this way. I realize we don't know the details of all these situations, but it's not very comforting.
