A Maryland State Police Trooper was seriously injured in a crash Thursday morning while he was patrolling in Dorchester County.

According to police, shortly before 8:30 a.m., Master Trooper Clinton Weems, 49, who's assigned to the Easton Barrack, was on routine patrol traveling westbound on Rt. 392 when a Ford F-450 crossed the center line and hit the trooper head-on.

Police said Weems was trapped in his car and had to be extricated by county fire and EMS. He was flown to Baltimore's Shock Trauma Center, where as of Thursday afternoon he was listed in serious condition and undergoing treatment.

The driver of the 2006 Ford F-450 was identified as Tristen E. Blake, 19, of Federalsburg, Md., according to police. He was treated on the scene and released. A passenger in the truck, identified as Jesus Sanchez, 41, of Cambridge, Md., was also treated on the scene and released, police said.
