Man Charged After Allegedly Crashing Truck Into Police Car

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - A Salisbury man has been charged after causing a four vehicle pile up. Ocean City Police say on Saturday, around 11:35 AM, two officers in a police car were stopped at a traffic light on 84th Street, when a box truck didn't stop, and hit the police car, causing a chain reaction involving four vehicles in total.

The officers were treated at Atlantic General Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. They won't return to duty for a few more days. The police cruiser has been taken out of service due to the severe damages sustained in the crash.

Police say the driver of the box truck, 33-year-old John Truitt, was charged with failing to control speed to avoid a collision, negligent driving, and failing to have valid medical certificate (commercial driver code violation).

The three other vehicles involved in the crash weren't badly damaged, and were able to drive from the scene. No one else was hurt.
