BALTIMORE — A U.S. Park Police officer was dragged about 40 feet when his cruiser was struck from behind during a traffic stop Tuesday on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway in an accident that shut down the highway between Route 197 and Powder Mill Road for most of the morning rush, authorities said.

According to police, the officer had stopped a southbound car about 7:37 a.m. half a mile south of Route 197. While the officer was standing at the driver's-side window, his cruiser was struck from behind on the right shoulder by a pickup truck that had left the roadway, said Lt. Dennis Maroney of the Park Police. The cruiser then hit the vehicle the officer had stopped.
