A Maryland State Police employee struck a state police trooper along southbound Interstate 95 in Jessup Wednesday afternoon, closing all southbound lanes in the area for several hours, according to police.

About 3 p.m., Trooper First Class Wing Tong of the Waterloo Barrack stopped a Ford SUV near Route 175 for appearing to have improper license plates, according to police. As Tong approached the stopped Ford on its passenger side, a Mercury drove on to the shoulder and struck Tong's car and the Ford, which knocked tong over the guardrail.

Tong was flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore in critical condition. He is now in stable condition, NBC Washington reports.

The driver of the Mercury, 65-year-old Maureen Walter of Poolesville, was taken to Howard County General Hospital. She is a state police civilian employee and was driving a car registered to the department.

I pray that Trooper Tong continues to improve and pray for a full recovery and return to duty. Hang in there my brother
