    FRAMINGHAM, Mass. - Several people were injured in a crash involving a Massachusetts State Police Trooper on the Pike Tuesday morning, according to the state police. 

    The crash happened just after 11 a.m. on the eastbound side of the highway near exit 12.

    Police said a box truck rear-ended a pickup truck, creating a domino effect with several more vehicles, including an unmarked state police cruiser and a tractor trailer.

    The driver of the pickup trick, a 54-year-old man from Hudson, was taken by medical helicopter to UMass Medical Center in Worcester with "incapacitating" injuries. Two others, a man and woman in their 60s from Charlton, were taken by ambulance to the same hospital with "incapacitating" injuries. 

    The driver of the box truck, a 56-year-old man from Pepperell, was taken to Metrowest Medical Center in Framingham by ambulance with "non-incapacitating" injuries and the trooper was taken to Beth Israel Hospital with "potentially incapacitating" injuries.

    It's unclear at this time what caused the initial crash.
