A New Hampshire state trooper was injured when he was hit by a car driven by a Waltham man while helping remove a fallen tree from Interstate 95 in Greenland, N.H. during yesterday's storms.
State police say a car driven by 83-year-old William Dillion rear-ended a parked cruiser around 8:30 last night, sending the car out of control and into a group of troopers who were directing traffic and trying to remove the tree.
Sergeant James White was knocked off the road into trees along the highway. He was treated and released from Portsmouth Regional Hospital.
Dillon and his passenger were not injured, authorities said.
