maine trooper injured

Officials say another Maine State Trooper has been injured when his cruiser was struck from behind by a vehicle along I-95.

A Maine Public Safety Department spokesman said the crash Friday evening was the second in a week in which a cruiser with flashing lights was struck while stopped alongside a road.

Police say a car driven by 22-year-old Nancy Colson of Topsham lost control and hit the back of the cruiser, forcing it into the guardrail. Both Colson and Trooper Ryan Keller were taken to Central Maine Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

The crash happened in the same area where Trooper John Davis was injured when his cruiser was struck by a tractor-trailer a week earlier.
