McHugh, of Maryland, was pulling into traffic from Tony’s Food L

and Shopping Plaza at around 1:35 p.m. when his Ford Taurus sedan

was struck by Sgt. Paul Thorpe’s unmarked Ford Cruiser, which was

headed westbound on Route 302, a Sheriff’s Office press release

said.

accident is still under investigation. It appears that McHugh could

not see the cruiser because of a third car that blocked his vision

as he pulled out into traffic. There have been no charges filed at

this time.
