According to police, an Annapolis police officer was injured on Saturday, April 26, when his vehicle was struck by a Ford Truck. The motor vehicle accident occurred during the late evening hours on Compromise Street. At that time, the officer’s car was parked when the truck left the road, collided with a wall, and stuck his vehicle.
At this time, it is believed that alcohol and speed are both factors in the accident. That being said, there is no confirmation as to whether or not police have filed charges against the driver who caused the accident.
Upon arriving at the scene, emergency crews were forced to extricate the officer from his vehicle. At that point, he was taken by air to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma in Baltimore. After receiving treatment, he was later released from the hospital.
This story shows that a motor vehicle accident can happen at any time, even when one vehicle is pulled off on the side of the road. In this case, the person driving the truck, who was not injured in the accident, veered off the road and collided with the officer’s car while it was parked. As a result, he was taken to a local hospital for the treatment of injuries.
If the driver of the truck had not been speeding or under the influence of alcohol, there is a good chance that this accident would never have occurred. This is why it is important to follow the rules of the road, as well as every law that is in place to protect the public.
