RANDOLPH, Mass. — Two Massachusetts state police cruisers have been struck by other vehicles in separate overnight highway crashes.

State police said a trooper was taken to a hospital with minor injuries early Tuesday after another vehicle plowed into the back of his cruiser in the westbound lanes of the Massachusetts Turnpike in Newton. The trooper was working a paid construction detail.

The other car flipped over and firefighters extricated the driver, who was hospitalized.
