Accident at Maryland Mosque leaves two injured

A vehicle crash at Maryland Mosque on Sunday left two injured.

Police say a 76-year-old man, was trying to park when the car fell into the lower level of an outside enclosure near the building. The incident happened just before 7:30 p.m. on Sunday at the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community’s Baitur Rehman Mosque on Good Hope Road.

Firefighters removed the driver and the passenger — a 71-year-old woman — from the car. They were taken to the hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening, a Montgomery County Fire and Rescue spokesman said.

Police believe that the driver may not have realized in what gear the car was.
