State Police say a trooper and three other people were injured in a crash between the trooper's marked cruiser and another vehicle.

It happened about 7:10 a.m. Monday Mill Creek Road and McKennans Church Road in Wilmington. Police say a vehicle began to make a right turn, but stopped after partially completing the turn. Authorities say the trooper began to turn left when an SUV that was traveling behind the stopped vehicle continued through the intersection and hit the trooper's cruiser.

The trooper and the driver of the SUV, 17-year-old Scott Jenkins of Wilmington, and two passengers in the trooper's cruiser were taken to a local hospital with injuries that are not considered to be life-threatening.

The accident is under investigation.
