Correction: Troopers Injured story
BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) — In a story July 15 about state troopers injured in a crash, The Associated Press, relying on information from the Massachusetts State Police, erroneously reported one of the charges against a suspected drunken driver. State police now say that Frandy Jose Ramirez Rodriguez was charged with driving with a revoked vehicle registration, not with a suspended license.
A corrected version of the story is below:
4 state troopers, civilian, injured by drunk driving suspect
Four Massachusetts State Police troopers and a civilian have been injured in a chain reaction crash caused by a suspected drunken driver
BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) — Four Massachusetts State Police troopers and a civilian have been injured in a chain reaction crash caused by a suspected drunken driver.
Agency spokesman David Procopio says the troopers were in two cruisers conducting a traffic stop on Route 27 in Brockton at about 1 a.m. Monday.
The suspect struck the back of one cruiser, pushing it into the second, which was pushed into the pulled-over vehicle.
The injured went to the hospital where they were treated and released.
The troopers were two field training officers and two June graduates of the state police academy. Their names weren’t released.
Frandy Jose Ramirez Rodriguez, of Brockton, faces arraignment Monday on several charges including driving under the influence of alcohol and driving after a registration suspension. It wasn’t known if he has a lawyer.
