BOSTON (AP) — A state police trooper was hurt when his stationary cruiser was struck from behind by a woman who has been charged with drunken driving.
A department spokesman says Trooper Mark Lombardi was treated at a hospital and released after being struck at about 10:30 p.m. Monday on the Massachusetts Turnpike in Boston.
His blue lights were on while he protected a maintenance crew performing light pole inspections.
The force of the impact tipped over the woman’s SUV.
Police say 45-year-old Ann Lyn King of Worcester faces a number of charges including operating under the influence.
She is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday. It’s not clear if she has a lawyer.
