Two hurt when car collides with police van


BALTIMORE -- A city police officer and another man were injured yesterday when a police van collided with a car at an East Baltimore intersection, authorities said.

After the initial impact at 2:25 p.m., the police van spun out of control and hit a light pole, which fell on some wires and knocked down an overhead traffic signal.

The driver, Officer John Smith, 34, was trapped in the van and had to be freed by firefighters. He was expected to be released after treatment at Johns Hopkins Hospital, police said.

Officer Raymond Howard, an accident investigator, said the van was westbound on Madison Street with lights and siren activated when it was hit by a 1980 Chevrolet Monte Carlo being driven north on Chester Street.

The driver of the car, Johnny Shelly, 34, of the 5900 block of Radecke Ave., was charged with several traffic violations, including running a red light.
