Two accidents close JFX; officer treated for injuries

Two related accidents yesterday on the southbound Jones Falls Expressway north of 28th Street closed the interstate briefly, backing up traffic and slightly injuring a police officer.

About 8:30 a.m., a southbound vehicle slid on wet pavement onto the left shoulder and safety barrier, blocking one lane. Another southbound driver braked suddenly, skidding his 1994 Toyota into a parked police car. The entire southbound side was then closed.

Officer Phillip Tabron, who was in his car, was released after treatment for back pain at Sinai Hospital, a spokesman said. No one else was injured, police said.
