On Saturday night, a state police trooper was hit by a car while on a detail in a damaged area of Boston’s Mass Pike. The area was damaged in an earlier traffic accident that occurred around 11am that morning.
The driver of a 2009 Toyota Camry dropped a “large piece of equipment” which hit one of the panels at the D entrance of the Mass Pike on Congress Street around 9pm.
According to state police Lt. Eric Anderson, the injured trooper was rushed to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was listed in serious condition with non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the Toyota Camry, a 24-year-old man from Hyde Park, was arrested on marijuana charges, and the car accident remains under investigation.
