A 45-year-old man suffered serious, life-threatening injuries after being struck by a car at the Maritime Car Wash at 2473 Solomon's Island Rd. at approximately 11 a.m. Saturday, according to the Anne Arundel County Fire Department.
"I was sitting there alongside the window, and it sounded like a bomb went off," said an eyewitness. "It threw glass back at least 15 feet across the room."
A black GMC Acadia reportedly crashed through the car wash's front window and pressed the man between an aluminum support and the vehicle. Another woman managed to run out of the way in time.
"It was one of the most upsetting things I have ever seen," the witness said.
The witness said that a Maritime employee was driving the vehicle, but Maritime did not answer Patch's call for confirmation.
Lt. Keith Hamilton said the man was taken by helicopter with serious life-threatening injuries to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.
