A motorcyclist will be arraigned in court Monday after Massachusetts State Police say he struck a trooper near Gillette Stadium in Foxboro while fleeing from police.
State police said the trooper was on post-game traffic detail at a parking lot on Route 1 when he was struck around 4:30 p.m.
The trooper was transported to Boston Medical Center with serious injuries to his head. Authorities said his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
The motorcyclist, identified as Jose Perez-Rodriguez, 25, of Everett, was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston with unknown injuries.
Police said troopers had been trying to stop Perez-Rodriguez near the main entrance of another parking lot when he allegedly tried to flee. In doing so, police said he drove against traffic and struck the trooper.
Perez-Rodriguez was released from the hospital into police custody and was booked on charges related to reckless operation.
