Alleged Drunk Driver Hits State Trooper On I93 In Quincy

QUINCY (AP) – Massachusetts state police have released the name of a trooper injured in a crash caused by an alleged drunken driver on Interstate 93 in Quincy.

Authorities say 43-year-old Trooper Brian Berry of the Milton barracks remains at Boston Medical Center on Sunday in stable condition with leg injuries.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Kim Tunnicliffe reports.

Authorities say Berry stopped a vehicle on I-93 northbound near Exit 9 shortly before 5 a.m. Sunday and was outside his cruiser when another car crashed into the cruiser, which struck Berry.

The driver of the car that struck the cruiser, 40-year-old Wayne Leduc of Milton, was charged with operating under the influence of liquor and other crimes. He’s being held on bail and is expected to be arraigned Monday at Quincy District Court. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
