CEN­TRE­VILLE — Deputy Steve Crea­son, who was in­jured when he was struck by a Mary­land State Po­lice car while set­ting up a road­block July 26 on Route 213, is now re­cov­er­ing at home, ac­cord­ing to the Queen Anne’s County Sher­iff’s Of­fice.

Crea­son was help­ing stop traf­fic in prepa­ra­tion of pulling over al­leged rob­bery sus­pects. He was in the me­dian when he was struck with the right front cor­ner bumper and fender of the trooper’s car.

Crea­son was flown by a Mary­land State Po­lice helicopter to the Univer­sity of Mary­land Shock Trauma Cen­ter in Bal­ti­more where he un­der­went surgery for a bro­ken leg and treat­ment for other in­juries.

He was re­leased from the trauma cen­ter on July 28.

“Thanks to the com­mu­nity, al­lied agen­cies and emer­gency ser­vices for all of their sup­port. We are very happy that Steve is on his way to a re­cov­ery, and we will be glad when he is able to be back serv­ing Queen Anne’s County,” said Sher­iff Gary Hof­mann.

Crea­son is ex­pected to be out 10 to 12 weeks, the sher­iff’s of­fice said.
