PARKVILLE, Md. (WMAR) - An overnight crash closed several lanes on I-695 near Harford Road in Baltimore County.
According to Maryland State Police, a trooper was stopped in the middle of one of the beltway lanes with their flashing lights activated. The trooper was reportedly responding to a car accident for two damaged vehicles.
But it was the trooper's cruiser that would be damaged next when a 21-year-old driver slammed into it from the rear.
The 21-year-old, driving a blue Honda Fit, hit the car so hard that it went into the left shoulder and into the concrete barrier.
While the other drivers and the trooper were able to escape being hit dodge any injuries, the 21-year-old from Towson suffered cuts to her face.
After being cut out of her wrecked Honda, the woman was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview with non-life threatening injuries.
All lanes on the outer loop of I-695 were shut down because of the crash. After the crash team finished their investigation and cleaned up the scene, lanes reopened around 1:30 a.m.
