Pr. George's officer hurt in collision
A Prince George's County police officer was seriously injured Thursday evening when her cruiser was struck by a vehicle in the Oxon Hill area, officials said.
The officer was responding to a routine call and did not have her emergency lights on when the cars collided at the intersection of St. Barnabas and Old Silver Hill roads about 6:45 p.m., said Cpl. Clinton Copeland, a spokesman.
The officer was taken to a hospital in serious condition, but her injuries were not believed to be life threatening, Copeland said.
A person in the other vehicle suffered a minor knee injury, he said.
It was not immediately clear which vehicle had the right-of-way. The investigation continues.
