    Authorities say they were trying to stop a driver who was weaving all over the road when the driver suddenly veered into the median and hit a police cruiser, causing it to roll over and land on the other side of the highway.

    Two Wells, Maine, officers suffered minor injuries.

    The driver of the other car, 33-year-old Anthony Menici, of Charlestown, Massachusetts, was taken to Southern Maine Medical Center. He was charged with OUI, Driving to Endanger and possession of Suboxone.
