LA PLATA, Md. — A Maryland State Police trooper and another driver were injured in a crash in La Plata on Thursday evening. 

The trooper assigned to the Maryland State Police La Plata Barrack was responding to a prior motor vehicle crash when the accident occurred on September 14, 2023, shortly after 5 p.m.  

According to a preliminary investigation, the trooper was traveling southbound on St. Charles Parkway with emergency equipment activated, coming to a full stop at the intersection of Billingsley Road when a Toyota Corolla traveling eastbound on Saint Charles Parkway struck the trooper’s unmarked Ford Explorer.
