The Maryland State Police investigate a hit-and-run accident involving a trooper’s vehicle that was hit in Anne Arundel County. The Anne Arundel crash happened on Monday, April 26, around 1:00 a.m. while a trooper was clearing a traffic stop; that’s when a white Volvo tractor-trailer crashed the trooper’s marked vehicle.
The preliminary investigation shows that the accident happened on the shoulder of westbound Route 50 before Ritchie Highway in Annapolis.
The tractor-trailer is believed to have damage to the passenger side, including a missing step rail. The officials said that the trooper wasn’t injured since he was standing on the right side of the vehicle.

Hit-and-run accidents can be quite complex. Not staying at the scene of the accident is illegal and if you get caught you will certainly face charges. If you were involved in such an accident, make sure to seek medical help if you’re injured and report the crash to the police. Even though things may appear hopeless at this point, you shouldn’t hesitate to call a car accident lawyer. They will investigate the case on their own, talk to witnesses and help you get your claim.
In case the police don’t find the driver who hit you and fled the scene, you should seek a compensation claim from your own insurance company. But, if the driver is located, then you will regularly file a lawsuit and seek a claim for your damages, injuries and other injury-related fees you had. Also, your attorney will help you seek a claim for your pain and suffering.
These things aren’t going to go smoothly, which is why a skilled Maryland car accident lawyer is a necessity. Our team at Pinder Plotkin is here for you; call us today.
