ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, md. — Around 8:44 p.m. on Friday night, an officer was involved in a crash on Annapolis Road near Disney Avenue.

He was responding to a call in his police truck with his lights and siren activated approaching the intersection of Rockenbach Road in Severn.

The truck 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 officer is currently in serious condition at Shock Trauma and the civilian involved was suffered minor injuries.

Officers say the primary cause of the collision appears to be the driver of the Hyundai failing to yield intersection right of way.
