RAYNHAM, Mass. (AP) - For the third time in less than a week, a driver suspected of being drunk has slammed into a highway work zone in the Boston area.

No one was hurt in the crash Thursday morning on Route 24 in Raynham.

Massachusetts State Police say a Brockton woman’s Jeep struck a Bristol County sheriff’s office van providing a safety detail. The woman was charged with operating under the influence of liquor and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.

On Tuesday, a highway worker was killed after he was hit on Interstate 93 in Medford. The driver was charged with vehicular homicide and operating under the influence.

Another highway worker was seriously hurt Monday after being struck in Boston. A man has been charged with OUI in that crash.
