Maryland State Police Release Identity Of Trooper Seriously Injured In New Year’s Eve Crash

By Alpert Schreyer on January 7, 2016

I-95 road signLast Thursday on New Year’s Eve, a Maryland State trooper was seriously injured when he stopped to help an elderly couple on the side of I-95 and his patrol car was rear ended, crashing it into the couple’s car.  

The trooper has been identified at 27-year-old Tristen Phillip, a 2012 Morgan State University graduate and 2-year member of the Maryland State Police.  Phillip had been dispatched to help an elderly couple with their disabled vehicle and had been at the scene for approximately one hour before the incident occurred.  He was inside his marked patrol car on the right shoulder when a Dodge Stratus driven by 31-year-old Rodney Irons Jr. of Silver Spring hit his patrol car, pushing it into the disabled vehicle.

The couple, Melvin and Ellen Pell from Wilmington, DE, declined treatment on the scene while Irons was charged with driving without a license and is currently under investigation.

The Delmarva Supports Law Enforcement has updated through social media that Phillips is on the road to recovery and is resting at home.
