Md. Trooper Struck by Vehicle

October 07, 2013  | 

A Maryland State Police trooper was listed in critical condition at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center after being struck by a car early Sunday morning in Pasadena.

The trooper, Jacqueline A. Kline, has a serious head injury that could keep her in the hospital for weeks, as well as a broken arm, cuts, and bruises, according to Col. Marcus Brown, superintendent of the Maryland State Police.

Kline was backing up a K-9 trooper who had pulled over a suspected drunken driver headed east on Route 100, just before the Catherine Avenue exit, at about 1 a.m. She was out of her car and walking on the shoulder when she was struck by a Nissan driven by Enrique Guzman, 21, of Pasadena, state police reported.

Another sad reminder of how dangerous a routine traffic stop can be. I hope Officer Kline has a speedy recovery and is back behind the wheel soon.
