Randolph: E. Bridgewater woman charged with OUI for striking state trooper

A Massachusetts state trooper has been injured after his cruiser was struck from behind by a suspected drunken driver.

A police spokesman says the trooper was in his cruiser at about 2:30 a.m. Friday working a construction detail on Interstate 93 south in Randolph when he was struck by a Land Rover operated by 47-year-old Leslie Minasian of East Bridgewater.

Trooper Michael Isom was transported to Boston Medical Center with serious injuries. Minasian was treated and released from Norwood Hospital. She is scheduled to be arraigned in Quincy District Court on charges including second offense operating under the influence.

The cruiser with its blue lights on was in the far left lane of the highway, which at the time was closed to traffic.

The crash remains under investigation.
