PARKVILLE, Md. (AP) -- State police say a woman rammed a trooper's car while the trooper was investigating an accident on the Baltimore Beltway. The trooper was uninjured.

The collision occurred Friday night, shortly before midnight. Police say the trooper's vehicle was in the right lane of Interstate 695 near the Harford Road exit. The patrol car had its emergency lights on and was sitting behind two damaged vehicles.

Police say a car driven by a 21-year-old Towson woman struck the trooper's vehicle from behind and pushed it onto the shoulder. The trooper and the other people standing on the shoulder were able to escape injury. The woman who struck the trooper's car was hospitalized for treatment of facial lacerations.
