A Louisiana State Trooper was injured Sunday when a suspected drunk driver crashed into the back of the trooper’s squad car on Interstate 12 while the trooper was investigating another crash.
A trooper was stopped on the shoulder of I-12 east near O’Neal Lane about 2:40 a.m. when Magen Alicia Hall crashed into the back of his cruiser, said Sgt. Nick Manale, a State Police spokesman.
The trooper and Hall were both taken to an area hospital with minor to moderate injuries, Manale said.
Hall was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on counts of careless operation and first-offense DWI.
