BOSTON — Two state troopers serving as human shields for a motorist stranded in the westbound high-speed lane of the Massachusetts Turnpike Saturday night escaped death when an allegedly drunken driver plowed into their cruisers with his SUV.
Trooper Christopher Martin, a 10-year veteran of the department assigned to the Weston barracks, remained hospitalized last night at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center with serious injuries, but was expected to pull through, said Trooper Eric Benson, a state police spokesman.
