State trooper, motorist injured on Interstate 95

November 11, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A state trooper and a motorist were slightly injured in a multivehicle mishap yesterday on Interstate 95 near Joppa.

Trooper George Brantly had pulled onto the shoulder of the fast lane to help a stranded southbound motorist about 9 a.m., said Cpl. David Riggs of the Maryland State Police. Before Brantly could get out of the car, a driver swerved onto the shoulder and back into traffic, causing other cars to swerve.

One car hit a bus, and the impact pushed the car, driven by Patricia Davis of Baltimore, into Brantly's cruiser. He was treated at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and released. Davis was in good condition at Bayview yesterday.
