COLUMBIA, Md. (WMAR) - Howard County Police are investigating a parking garage crash that critically injured a 60-year-old man.
Police responded to the first floor of a parking garage in the 10400 block of Little Patuxent Parkway just after 7:00 p.m. for reports of the crash.

Kleiner was flown to Shock Trauma in critical condition.
Police are looking into the possibility that Kleiner may have suffered some type of a medical emergency just prior to the collision.
