2 Troopers Hurt When Cruiser Is Hit On I-95

COLLEGE PARK, Md.— Maryland State Police say two troopers were injured when their cruiser was struck on Interstate 95 in College Park.

It happened early Friday when 42-year-old Tfc. Manuel Moreno and 34-year-old Trooper John Cabrera were investigating a crash near Sandy Spring Road. State police say the troopers had put warning flares in the road and went to their marked vehicle with its emergency equipment activated.

Authorities say a car driven by 48-year-old Arcenia Macklin of Laurel ran through the flares and rear-ended the police car.

Moreno and Cabrera were taken to Prince George’s Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Macklin has been charged with driving under the influence.
