(Baltimore, MD) - Two Baltimore police officers were injured yesterday, neither seriously, in separate traffic incidents.
Just before 3 p.m., Officer Robert Talbert, 30, of the Western District, was responding to a 911 call concerning an armed person. As Talbert drove south in the 200 block of Mount St., a stolen Chrysler New Yorker came out of an alley behind the 1700 block of Lexington St. and struck his patrol car on the passenger side, said Agent Martin Bartness of the Police Department's public information office.
Talbert was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was treated and released. He suffered several bumps and bruises and needed stitches, Bartness said.
