OCEAN CITY, Md.- Authorities say a man riding a motor scooter had to be rushed to the hospital after he crashed into the back of an Ocean City police patrol vehicle early Monday.

Police said that at around 2:15 a.m., an officer was stopped in his patrol vehicle at a traffic light in the southbound turn lane at 41st Street. Investigators said that is when the operator of the scooter, later identified as 25-year-old Edward Thomas Johnson of Salisbury, then struck the patrol vehicle. This caused Johnson be ejected from his scooter, police said.
 
Police said the officer involved immediately began to render aid to Johnson, who was wearing a helmet; however, it became dislodged as a result of the crash and failed to fully protect him.

Johnson was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center by Ocean City EMS for treatment. His medical status is unknown at this time. The officer involved was taken to Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin where he was treated for minor injuries and released.

Police, who are continuing to investigate what happened, said Johnson is believed to have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.
