A man was injured when police say he crashed into a tree, after hitting another vehicle, in Talbot County.

Maryland State Police say on Friday, just before 6:00 AM, they responded to a motor vehicle collision in the area of westbound Route 50 at the 75 mile marker. Once on scene, Troopers say their investigation revealed that 30-year-old Bryan Lee Burton was driving a 2003 Nissan Maxima westbound on Ocean Gateway, in the area of the 75 mile marker.

According to the report, Burton hit the back of a 2003 Chevrolet pick-up truck driven by 48-year-old Wallace Richardson Wiley, of Cambridge. Authorities say that after Wiley's truck was hit, Burton continued to travel westbound, running off the roadway and hitting a tree in a front yard, on Ocean Gateway, in Trappe.

Officials say the Burton was injured, and transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center by Trooper 6. Wiley was not injured in the collision.
