A Maryland state trooper was injured in a serious crash in the southern part of the state.
On Tuesday, Trooper Jeffrey Gibson was driving north on Route 235, responding to an emergency in Lexington Park, when a Dodge pickup truck crossed in front of him. The cruiser slammed into the passenger side of the truck.
The impact flipped the truck and crushed the front of the cruiser, trapping Gibson inside. He was extracted from the vehicle and and airlifted to Prince George’s Hospital Center, where he was treated and released.
The driver of the pickup, Christopher Munson of Lusby, refused treatment.
Investigators say Gibson had his lights and siren on at the time of the crash.
