JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A driver has been charged with DUI after striking the back of an unoccupied Mississippi Highway Patrol car parked beside Interstate 55.

Patrol spokesman Cpl. Brandon Fortenberry tells The Clarion-Ledger (https://on.thec-l.com/2foIwOg ) the crash happened just after 1 a.m. Sunday near Canton.

A trooper and two other motorists had pulled over to help a stranded driver. Another vehicle struck the patrol car that had blue lights flashing. That caused the patrol car to hit the vehicles of the other helpers. The only car not hit was the one originally stranded.

The trooper and assisting motorists were away from their vehicles when the wreck happened, and Fortenberry says they were not injured.

The name of the person charged with DUI was not immediately released. Two passengers in that vehicle had minor injuries.
