Police Officer Hurt In Motor Vehicle Accident

Howard County Police Officer Injured in Car Accident


A Howard County law enforcement officer was listed in stable condition at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center after suffering injuries in a multivehicle car accident on westbound I-70 near Marriottsville Road, according to Howard County Police. The officer, a 10-year veteran of the force, was sitting in his patrol car after making a routine traffic stop when his vehicle was struck from behind by a pickup truck driven by a man from Taneytown. No one else was injured in the car accident.

At the time of the car crash, the police vehicle and the car that had been stopped were both completely off the road. Authorities believe that the driver of the pickup may have fallen asleep just before the car accident, causing him to drift off the road and strike the police car. The car accident occurred at 11:37 p.m. on Monday, September 16, 2013. All westbound traffic was shut down for about two hours after the car crash.
