DUNDALK, Md. (WMAR) — An on-duty Baltimore County Police officer and another driver were hurt Monday evening following a two car crash in Dundalk.

It happened just before 10 p.m. in the area of Sollers Point Road and Waymouth Way.

The officer was driving north in his police cruiser when he tried making a left onto Waymouth and was hit from behind.

The other vehicle, a Chevy Aveo ended up crashing into a tree on the southbound side of the road.

Both the officer and Chevy driver were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
