Maryland State Police Seek Driver Who Injured Trooper

RUXTON, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police say they are looking for a driver who struck and injured a trooper during a traffic stop.

State Police say Trooper First Class Jason M. James was struck shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday while standing at the side of a vehicle. State Police say the 30-year-old trooper is believed to have been hit by the mirror and side of a passing vehicle and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators say the vehicle, described as a four-door passenger car, possibly gold or tan, did not stop and fled the scene.

  • Just a Thought

    I was thinking of this and it is possibly that the driver never even knew they hit the police officer given it was just the mirror. Glad the Police officer was alright, but given it was on 83 it could of been a PA driver unaware of the MD law.
