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.

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.
