METHUEN (AP) — A Massachusetts state trooper was injured after his cruiser was hit while he was working a paid detail on Route 93.

State police say the trooper was in his cruiser Wednesday around 8 p.m. and had the ramp to Exit 48 closed with traffic cones. That’s when he was rear-ended by the other vehicle, which is registered in New Hampshire.
