A Baltimore police officer was released from Shock Trauma on Wednesday morning with minor injuries after a woman crashed into his vehicle while it was parked in the Central Park Heights neighborhood in Northwest Baltimore early Tuesday night, the department said.
Det. Donny Moses, spokesman for the department, said that around 6:10 p.m., a woman was driving a Jeep “at a high rate of speed” on Park Heights Avenue near Sumter Avenue when she sideswiped another vehicle that was stopped in traffic.
Moses said that after sideswiping the first vehicle, the woman then crashed her Jeep into the back of an unmarked police vehicle parked on the 4500 block of Park Heights Ave.
The force of the crash also caused the vehicle to crash into two other automobiles in the area, Moses said.
An officer in the vehicle at the time of the crash was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma and was held overnight, the department said. The officer was then released in the morning with a sprained arm and some bruises.
The woman suffered minor injuries in the crash, Moses said.
