SILVER SPRING, Md. — Four people, including a teenager and a toddler, were transported to a hospital after a vehicle crash and fire that happened Friday evening in Montgomery County, according to Pete Piringer of the county's fire department and rescue service. 

The fiery crash happened near the intersection of Colesville Road and Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring, Maryland. According to a spokesperson from the Montgomery County Police Department, a Buick Lucerne was traveling north on Georgia Avenue when the driver side-swiped a Toyota Highlander near Colesville Road.

The Camry caught on fire. The Buick then struck a Nissan Juke that was turning left from southbound Colesville to southbound Georgia. Police and fire units did respond to the scene, which can be seen in the tweets that Piringer sent out.
