Hundreds race to raise money for injured trooper

SYKESVILLE, Md. (AP) -- More than 800 people turned out for a 5K race to raise money to help an injured state trooper and her family.

The 5K for JK was held Sunday at the Maryland State Police Academy. The proceeds help Trooper Jacqueline Kline who was hit by a car last month while helping another trooper during a traffic stop on Route 100.

Kline spent several weeks in Shock Trauma and is now in a rehab hospital. Kline's mother, Amy Reed, says she expects her daughter to leave the hospital in about a week, but she'll continue physical therapy. She says Kline is determined to return to work.

The crash sparked a boost in enforcement of the Move Over law, which requires drivers to switch lanes away from emergency vehicles.
