Anthony Jones

Trooper First Class Anthony Jones was struck and killed by a vehicle being operated by an intoxicated driver.

He and another trooper were on the scene of a single-vehicle crash on the shoulder of Route 50 near Freeway Airport in Bowie. Both patrol cars were in a lighted area and had their emergency equipment activated. Trooper Jones was removing a tire from a travel lane of the highway when he was struck by a van and dragged several hundred yards. Prior to the collision, Trooper Jones had utilized his flashlight to warn the motorist of his intentions.

The driver stopped near the scene and was taken into custody after he exhibited signs of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs. He was charged with several counts in connection with the incident. The subject was ultimately fined $600 and was required to attend traffic school.

Trooper Jones was a U.S. Air Force veteran and had served with the Maryland State Police for six years. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.
