An Anne Arundel County police officer responding to an emergency call was injured Friday morning when his cruiser crashed into two parked vehicles in Glen Burnie, after he swerved to avoid a car that pulled in front of his and he lost control, according to the department.

Officer Adam Hinson was in serious condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, police said.

Hinson, a five-year veteran of the department, was responding, with his marked car's emergency lights on, to a report of an armed robbery and assault, according to police. About 5:15 a.m., he was driving southbound on Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard in Glen Burnie when a light-colored vehicle pulled in front of him from Faywood Avenue, police said.

Hinson avoided that vehicle, but lost control of his. The 2011 Ford Crown Victoria traveled sideways and crossed over the southbound and northbound lanes of Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard, according to police.

It struck two parked vehicles, first a 2003 Ford Ranger on the shoulder of the northbound lanes. It continued across the grass of a home in the 7800 block of Baltimore Annapolis Blvd., hitting a fence and a Chevrolet pickup parked in the driveway, police said, before coming to a stop near the house.

Police asked anyone who saw the crash or had information about it to call the traffic safety section at 410-222-8573 or the communications office at 410-222-8610.
