City police cruiser involved in head-on accident

May 11, 2006

A marked Hagerstown Police Department cruiser patrolling Dual Highway was hit head-on this morning by a pickup truck that was traveling the wrong way near Hagers-town Billiards, Lt. Richard Reynolds said.

The cruiser's driver, Officer Wayne Hose, was transported to Washington County Hospital following the reported 2:14 a.m. accident in the 1800 block of Dual Highway. The driver of the truck has not been found, but the truck was found abandoned at Martin's parking lot nearby, he said. Reynolds could not provide a description of the truck.

Hose was treated and released at the hospital, Reynolds said.

Reynolds said the cruiser "got significant damage," but whether the cruiser was totaled in the wreck has yet to be determined.

"Hose unsuccessfully attempted to swerve his cruiser away from the truck," he said. Reynolds said he did not know which direction Hose was traveling or in which lanes of U.S. 40 the accident occurred.
