Police: ATV Hit Cruiser; Driver Hurt
FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A Mount Airy man is in serious but stable condition after his all-terrain vehicle collided with a sheriff deputy’s squad car.
Christopher Hancock, 22, remained at Shock Trauma in Baltimore Monday, two days after the incident.
The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to a report of ATVs on Old National Pike. They spotted three of them eastbound near Sydney Road, just west of Mount Airy.
Police say the ATVs fanned out across both lanes as the westbound cruiser approached. They say deputy First Class William Mosser braked and swerved left to avoid a collision but one of the ATVs hit the cruiser in the front bumper and right quarter panel.
Mosser was treated for his injuries at the scene.
The sheriff’s department is investigating the incident.
