A Maryland State trooper and two passengers on a three-wheeled motorcyclist were injured Saturday night after colliding in a downtown Ocean City intersection.
According to a news release from the Maryland State Police, just after 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Trooper First Class Cody Shubert of the Berlin Barrack was driving south on Philadelphia Avenue assisting local patrols with OC BikeFest events.
As he approached the intersection with 12th Street, the release said Shubert noticed a vehicle driving in front of him without lights. As he tried to drive through the intersection to initiate a traffic stop on the non-lit vehicle, the driver of a three-wheeled motorcycle driving north on Philadelphia Avenue crossed into his path while attempting to make a left turn at 12th Street. The two vehicles crashed in the intersection.
A male and female, who the release did not name, were on the motorcycle and taken by helicopter to TidalHealth in Salisbury, and then to Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware for treatment of unspecified injuries. Shubert was taken to Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin for treatment of injuries and has since been released.
Maryland State Police officers are continuing to investigate the incident.
