A man crashed into a Massachusetts State Police cruiser and a highway worker's truck while driving drunk and in the wrong late early Sunday morning, leaving the worker injured, officials said.
The incident happened after 5 a.m. near a road construction site on Route 3 in Braintree, Massachusetts State Police said. A Jeep Grand Cherokee slammed into the cruiser and the flatbed truck.
The trooper inside the police vehicle was unharmed, but a 53-year-old Stoughton man employed by a road contractor was hurt in the crash with the truck, police said. He was taken to South Shore Hospital with minor injuries.
Christopher Fay, a 24-year-old from Abington, was found to have been driving drunk, according to police. Fay was taken to South Shore Hospital for non-life threatening injuries and was expected to be released later Sunday.
