Giroux, 41, a 12-year veteran of the force, was taken to Howard County General Hospital for evaluation and released, police said.
The 16-year-old driver, Blake Jackson, was not injured, police said, and no citations were issued. Police did not indicate where Jackson lives and did not specify what damages the vehicles sustained.
