State police vehicle collides with motorcycle collide in Ocean City

Maryland State Police said a trooper’s vehicle collided with a motorcycle Saturday night in Ocean City.

The incident involved Trooper First Class Cody Shubert, a three-year state police veteran assigned to the Berlin Barrack. He was in an unmarked agency-issued 2020 Ford Explorer helping the Ocean City Police Department with road patrol for Bike Week, according to a Sunday news release.

It was shortly after 8:35 p.m., police said, when Shubert noticed a vehicle in front of him operating without lights while heading south on Philadelphia Avenue near the 12th Street intersection.

Shubert tried to go through the intersection intending to initiate a traffic stop, according to police. At the same time, a three-wheel motorcycle going north on Philadelphia Avenue attempted a left turn at 12th Street. The motorcycle crossed Shubert’s path and the two collided in the intersection.
