New Bedford Woman Hits State Police Cruiser in Wareham
A Massachusetts State Police cruiser was struck by another vehicle on Route 25 in Wareham this afternoon. The trooper and the other driver, a New Bedford woman, were both transported to Tobey Hospital for non life-threatening injuries.
The trooper, who was on a patrol out of the Middleborough Barracks, was stationary in the center media near Exit 2 in the cruiser, a 2015 Ford Interceptor Utility. A 2007 Honda Civic being operated eastbound on Route 25 by a 25-year-old New Bedford woman, for reasons still under investigation, veered into the cruiser and struck the passenger side of the cruiser.
The crash remains under investigation. No further information is being released at this time.
