Ocean City police officer strikes pedestrian, sustains minor injuries

Two law enforcement officers were struck in Ocean City late Saturday as a motorist tried to run them down during an investigation, the state police said. The source of the story was incorrectly listed as the Wilmington News-Journal.

Maryland State Police said a Worcester County Sheriff's Office supervisor and an Ocean City police officer were struck by the auto just after 11 p.m. Saturday.

Officials said the pedestrian, a 26-year-old male of CT, was treated for his injuries on scene and flown to Peninsula Regional Medical Center via Maryland State Police Trooper 4 helicopter. They were treated at a hospital and released.

Police say the officer was not engaging in a pursuit at the time of the accident, and was driving a marked Chevrolet Tahoe.

The officer wasn't identified, and the cause of the collision is still under investigation.

The passenger, Arkad Espinal, 20, of Shillington, Pa., is charged with possession of a controlled risky substance with intent to distribute and possession of a controlled unsafe substance.

Police will continue to investigate; the officer had a green light and the pedestrian was legally in the crosswalk, according to a release.

A Seaford man and his passenger are in trouble with the law in Maryland after they allegedly tried to kill two policemen with their vehicle. Neither suspect was struck by the rounds fired by officers. Ambrosino then put the auto into drive and accelerated forward.

The vehicle ended up at a dead end nearby. The auto driven by Ambrosino was impounded by State Police investigators. Police said officers took the passenger, Arkad Espinal, into custody at the auto. Police said Ambrosino jumped into the bay and was arrested about eight blocks away.

Investigators have learned that during the incident, Ambrosino stated he would rather die than go to jail. A search warrant is being obtained for the auto.
