Howard County cop hurt in crash

Three drivers, including a 23-year-old Howard County police officer, were sent to hospitals Thursday after a wreck on Route 32.

Police said the officer was driving a 2005 Ford Crown Victoria police car shortly before 6 p.m. along 32, north of Day Road, when it collided with a 2002 Ford Econoline van. Both were heading south.

The van then struck a 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe that was heading north.

The officer, Jonathan Campbell, a 2-year veteran of the force, was not responding to an emergency call at the time, police said.

He was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, and listed in stable condition.

The van driver, Robert Keefer, 62, and the Tahoe driver, Linda Cole, 57, were taken to Howard County General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Mr. Morse,
As a professional courtesy you should refer to police officers as such. "Cop" is a slang term that shouldn't be used by a "professional" journalist.
