EASTON, Md.- Eastbound Route 50 remained closed Monday afternoon in Easton as Maryland State Police investigate an accident involving a Maryland state trooper and a Talbot County woman.  The accident happened around 3 p.m. Monday afternoon at the intersection of Route 50 and Dutchman's Lane.  
Maryland State Police spokesperson Greg Shipley identified the trooper involved in the crash as 43-year-old Detective Sergeant Kevin Beauchamp, who is assigned to the La Plata Barrack.  MSP say he was driving an unmarked 2009 Ford Crown Victoria.  He was the only occupant in his car.

Police say the other driver is 65-year-old Gail Mills, of Easton, Md.  According to police, she was driving a 2002 Ford van.   
According to Shipley, the preliminary investigation indicates Beauchamp was traveling eastbound on Rt. 50 approaching Dutchman's Lane.  Mills was westbound on Rt. 50 and made a left turn onto Dutchman's Lane, crossing the path of Beauchamp's eastbound car, said Shipley.

Maryland State Police say both Mills and Beauchamp were flown by Maryland State Police helicopters to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center.  Police say Mills is listed in serious condition and Beauchamp is listed in fair condition.  

 Eastbound Rt. 50 will be reopened as soon as investigators have collected available evidence and the vehicles involved are removed.
