PIKESVILLE, Md. — A four-car accident believed to be caused by a Maryland State Trooper Thursday morning sent him and another driver to the hospital with injuries, State Police said.

Sgt. George Frazier was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Blazer, a State Police vehicle, south on I-795 as he approached stopped traffic near the southbound lanes leading to the outer loop of I-695 at about 7 a.m., State Police said. Preliminary investigation revealed the 48-year-old Frazier did not stop in time and struck the rear of a 2010 Chevrolet pickup driven by 54-year-old Michael Becker of Owings Mills. Becker’s truck was then pushed into the back of a 2017 Honda CRV driven by 25-year-old Brittanie Page of Arnold. Her vehicle then hit the rear of a 2011 Cadillac SRX driven by 62-year-old Roberta Zeck of Littlestown, Pa.

Becker was taken to Carroll Hospital Center for treatment of his injuries. Frazier later went there too for treatment. Zeck and Page refused medical treatment at the scene.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation, including contributing factors. Upon completion, findings from the investigation will be turned over to the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office for review and potential charges.
