MANCHESTER, NH – A sloppy morning commute took a bad turn for one Manchester motorist, after his car struck a State Police cruiser on I-93 Thursday morning.

Just after 6 a.m. on Feb. 5 Trooper Nickolas Quintiliani from NH State Police Troop B responded to a crash on Interstate 93 north, in Hooksett. On arrival Trooper Quintiliani parked his State Police cruiser with all emergency lights activated in the high speed breakdown lane and was assisting a motorist who had crashed into the center median.

Shortly after Trooper Quintiliani arrived on scene Raymond Paquin, 58, of Manchester, lost control of his 2004 Chevy Malibu, spinning out into the rear end of the State Police Cruiser.

Paquin was not injured and was ticketed by the Trooper for operating too fast for the existing road conditions. Trooper Quintiliani was in the driver’s seat at the time of the crash and suffered minor injuries.
