Truck crashes into brick wall, injuring Annapolis police officer

An Annapolis police officer was injured late Saturday after a truck crashed into a brick wall, sending debris onto the officer's parked car, Annapolis police said.

About 11:45 p.m. Saturday, Owen Frank, 28, driving a Ford F150 truck lost control of his vehicle as he was driving in the parking lot of Fleet Reserve Club in the 100 block of Compromise St., said Cpl. Amy Miguez, a spokeswoman for the department. The truck hit a low brick wall separating the street from the parking lot, she said.

Officer Mike Schreiber, 35, was sitting in his police car parked on Compromise Street when a stream of bricks landed on the driver's side of his vehicle, Miquez said. Rescue crews had to pry Schreiber from the car, and he was airlifted to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. A nine-year veteran of the force, Schreiber was treated overnight and released Sunday.

Frank, of Crownsville, was arrested and charged with traffic violations related to driving under the influence, according to Annapolis police officials.
