2 police officers, 2 others injured in car-van crash

Four people, including two city police officers and their female prisoner, were treated for minor injuries at area hospitals early yesterday after a collision between a department van and a car at a West Baltimore intersection.

Police spokesman Martin Bartness said Officer Larry Johnson Sr. was driving the prisoner transport van west on Riggs Avenue, with emergency lights flashing, when it collided about midnight with a 1989 Honda Civic driven north on Fulton Avenue by Roland Hall, 32, of the 1600 block of Lorman Court.

Both drivers, Officer Lynee Carter and prisoner were injured. An investigation is continuing.

Two accidents close JFX; officer treated for injuries

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

Police said the problem began about 8:30 a.m., when a southbound vehicle slid on wet pavement onto the left shoulder and safety barrier, blocking one lane. Before workers could remove the disabled vehicle, another southbound driver braked suddenly, skidding his 1994 Toyota into a parked police car at the scene. That forced the entire southbound side of the expressway to close.

Officer Phillip Tabron, who was in his car attending the first mishap, was released from Sinai Hospital after treatment for back pain, a spokesman said. No one else was injured, police said. One lane reopened by 9:30 a.m., and the rest was reopened shortly after.
