Woman accused of hitting State Police cruiser faces OUI


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 was arraigned Tuesday and held on $1,00 surety.
