PASADENA, Md. - Multiple people have been injured following an accident between a garbage truck and an SUV late Tuesday morning in Pasadena.

The accident occurred around 9:45 a.m. at Water Oak Point Road and Fort Smallwood Road. The collision led to Verizon utility poles being struck and caused power lines to fall.
