State troopers collide while looking for wrong-way driver
Two Maryland state troopers looking for a wrong-way driver were hurt when they collided with each other.
Maryland State Police said the troopers responded late Wednesday to a report of an apparently impaired driver going southbound in northbound lanes in the Forestville area of Prince George’s County.
As Troopers Warren Thompson and Kamil Kozoil responded, police say Trooper Thompson’s patrol car hit the rear of Trooper Kozoil’s car and Trooper Kozoil’s car traveled across the median and down an embankment.
The troopers were flown to a Baltimore hospital, and both were expected to survive.
