Maryland Trooper Killed in Collision with Tractor Trailer

Posted on June 16, 2011 to

A 39-year-old Maryland State Police trooper lost his life last month in a car accident on Interstate 95 in Howard County. The trooper was traveling south on I-95 around 2:40 a.m. when he hit a parked tractor-trailer on the shoulder, according to investigators. A witness told police that a speeding motorcycle and the officer’s squad car passed him just before the accident occurred. Seconds later, the squad car struck the rear of the tractor-trailer.

According to investigators, the officer was wearing a seatbelt when the accident happened. His patrol car hit the tractor and came to a stop at the front of the trailer. The driver of the tractor-trailer did not suffer any injuries in the crash.

The officer leaves behind six children, ages four to 19. He was an 11-year veteran of the Maryland State Police Force.
