EAST NEW MARKET, Md. - A Maryland State Police Trooper who was injured in a crash last week while he was patrolling in Dorchester County, is home from the hospital.

A video posted on the Cambridge Rescue Company's facebook page Tuesday showed a police convoy escorting Master Trooper Clinton Weems home. He had been at Baltimore Shock Trauma since Thursday's accident, but the facebook post said he was ready to recuperate at home.

According to police, shortly before 8:30 a.m. last Thursday, Weems, 49, who's assigned to the Easton Barrack, was on routine patrol traveling westbound on Rt. 392, east of Railroad Road, when a Ford F-450 crossed the center line and hit the trooper head-on.

Police said Weems was trapped in his car and had to be extricated by county fire and EMS.

The driver of the 2006 Ford F-450 was identified as Tristen E. Blake, 19, of Federalsburg, Md., according to police. He was treated on the scene and released. A passenger in the truck, identified as Jesus Sanchez, 41, of Cambridge, Md., was also treated on the scene and released, police said.

As of Wednesday morning, police said charges were still pending against the driver.
