Maryland Transportation Authority Police Officer Struck on the ICC

Around 12:30PM Thursday, a Maryland Transportation Authority Police Officer was struck by a passing SUV on the ICC. The Officer was on the right shoulder of the Westbound ICC/MD-200 near MM 11.4, between New Hampshire Avenue and Layhill Road.

The Officer was just stepping out of their cruiser when they were hit. They were transported to an area Trauma Center with minor injuries. The Maryland Transportation Authority Police Criminal Investigations and Collision Reconstruction Units responded to the scene to assist.

Maryland’s “Move Over” laws require drivers approaching an emergency or maintenance vehicle using flashing lights while stopped on a highway to, if possible, make a lane change into an available lane not immediately adjacent to the emergency vehicle.

If moving to another lane away from the stopped emergency or maintenance vehicle is not possible, the law requires drivers to slow down to a speed that is safe for existing weather, road, and traffic conditions.
