A Maryland State Police trooper and a woman riding in the marked police vehicle with him were taken to a hospital after the vehicle was rear-ended in Westminster yesterday afternoon.

Names of the injured and the driver of the second auto were not immediately available.

Investigators said the trooper was driving north on Pennsylvania Avenue south of Route 140 and slowing for traffic ahead when the accident occurred about 5:20 p.m.

The female driver of the Honda Civic that struck the police car was not injured, they said.

The passenger, believed to be related to the trooper, was placed in a neck brace and on a backboard before being taken to Carroll County General Hospital. The trooper was taken to the same hospital.

Information on their conditions was not immediately available.

Northbound traffic was rerouted around the accident scene while fire department medics cared for the victims.
