JOPPA, Md. (WMAR) - Two Maryland State Police troopers and another driver were hurt following an early Saturday morning crash in Harford County.
Police say the troopers were hit by the driver while on the scene of a robbery investigation.
The reported armed robbery happened around 4:00 a.m. at a convenience store on Rt. 152 at Franklinville Road.
Police report that one of the troopers injured in the crash had turned on his emergency lights on his unmarked patrol car. The trooper reportedly moved the car into the southbound lane of Rt. 152 to protect crime scene evidence.
A preliminary investigation revealed 32-year-old Trina Emory, driving a Volkswagen Beetle, was driving south on Rt. 152, but didn't go around the stopped patrol car. Police say Emory subsequently hit the back of the police vehicle.
Trooper Zachary Shelley was in the car, and Trooper First Class David Stanley was standing outside of the vehicle at the time of the crash.
Stanley was injured when, police say, he jumped down an embankment to get out of the way.
While the cause of the crash remains under investigation, detectives say they are not ruling anything out.
Both troopers injured in the crash were taken to local hospitals where they were expected to be treated and released.
Emory was also taken to Shock Trauma, but police have not revealed the extent of her injuries.
Charges are pending.
