WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. (AP) - A police officer directing traffic at a high school football game was struck and seriously injured by a car.

Monmouth County prosecutors say West Long Branch Sgt. Brian Kramer suffered a “significant” head cut, facial cuts and numerous shoulder, knee and finger injuries. He was taken to a hospital, but further details on his condition were not disclosed.

Kramer was struck around 9:20 p.m. Friday at the Parker Road entrance to Shore Regional High School. The impact sent Kramer into the car’s windshield, breaking the glass, and he eventually landed in the middle of the road.

The driver of the car, identified only as a 21-year-old man, was initially detained after the accident but was later released.

No charges have been filed, but authorities say the investigation is ongoing.
