We reported earlier today on the Route 40 crash between a Baltimore police cruiser and a fire truck. http://www.maryland-law.com/blog/route-40-crash-between-fire-engine-and-police-car-produces-serious-injuries.cfm         Unfortunately this follow-up brings grim news, Officer Tommy Portz is dead. Mr. Portz was declared dead on route to the University of Maryland Shock trauma Center. Additionally, four firefighters were injured not one as was earlier reported.

Mr. Portz a ten-year veteran of the department is the third active duty officer to die in the last month. Officer Portz was a married father of three and our thoughts and prayers are with his family.     http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/bs-md-police-fire-crash-20101020,0,7432041.story
