QUEEN ANNE’S COUNTY, Md. — A state trooper is being treated for injuries after he was hit by a car on Friday night while assisting in an armed robbery arrest.

The trooper, John Beville, was airlifted to University of Maryland shock trauma for non-life threatening injuries he received in an accident. The accident occurred while he was on the lookout for suspects connected with an armed robbery.

Beville had exited his patrol vehicle to run after a suspect he spotted on the shoulder of Rt. 404 when police say he was struck by Randall Cox, 62, who apparently didn’t see Beville. Cox remained on the scene, and no charges are expected to be filed.

The robbery suspect, one of four, was arrested by other troopers on the scene.
