NORTHFIELD, N.H.—A Manchester man has been arrested on drunken driving and other charges after police say he struck the side of a state police cruiser on Interstate 93.

A trooper was sitting in his cruiser with the emergency lights on on the side of the interstate on Sunday when he said a passing vehicle hit the front driver side of the cruiser. The trooper said the vehicle — a Chevy Lumina — continued without stopped.

No injuries were reported.

The vehicle was pulled over more than a mile south of the accident.

The driver — 26-year-old David Gile — faces charges of driving while intoxicated, having an open container of alcohol in the vehicle and conduct after an accident.
