2 MD Troopers Injured When Patrol Car Is Struck

Posted: Updated:

JOPPA, Md. (AP) - State police say two troopers suffered non-life-threatening injuries when their patrol car was struck while they were investigating a robbery.

The collision occurred shortly before 4 a.m. Saturday in Joppa, where police had responded to a report of an armed robbery at a convenience store. Police say the patrol car was stopped in the southbound lane of Route 152 with its emergency lights flashing when it was struck from behind by a Volkswagen Beetle.

Trooper Zachary Shelley was inside the car, and Trooper First Class David Stanley was injured when he jumped down an embankment to get out of the way of the Volkswagen. Both were taken to hospitals.

Police say charges are pending against the driver of the Volkswagen, 32-year-old Trina Emory of Edgewood. She was also hospitalized.
