Serious Injury Crash Severn

WESTERN DISTRICT 
Serious Injury Crash Severn

On July 9, 2021, at approximately 8:44 pm, a marked Anne Arundel County Police SUV was traveling eastbound on Annapolis Road approaching the intersection of Rockenbach Road in Severn. The police vehicle was responding to a call for service with emergency lights and siren activated. The police vehicle entered the intersection on a green signal. A Hyundai sedan was attempting to merge from Rockenbach Road onto eastbound Annapolis Road. The Hyundai failed to yield and was struck by the police vehicle.

The police officer was transported by the Anne Arundel County Fire Department to University of Maryland, R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore with serious injuries. The driver of the Hyundai was transported by the Anne Arundel County Fire Department to an area hospital with minor injuries.

Preliminarily, the primary cause of the collision appears to be the driver of the Hyundai failing to yield intersection right of way. The crash is being investigated by the Traffic Safety Section. The investigation is ongoing. The officer is currently in serious, but stable condition.
