CHARLESTON, W.Va. - An interstate driver rear-ended a stopped police cruiser on the Fort Hill Bridge Sunday, tying up traffic for about an hour.
The officer, whose name was not released, was out of the car assisting another driver who had been involved in a crash about noon, Lt. Preston Hickman said.
The officer left the cruiser, one of the city's new Ford Police Interceptors, blocking one of the eastbound lanes with its lights on.
Another driver then crashed into the rear of the cruiser. No injuries were reported.
Hickman did not know how fast the vehicle was traveling when it struck the cruiser. Both vehicles sustained damage.
The accident reconstruction team was at the scene Sunday afternoon.
