FAIRFIELD, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a woman was driving drunk when she crashed into a police cruiser.

Fairfield police say the accident occurred around 3 a.m. Saturday on Route 46.

They say officer Frank Tracey was slowing down for a red light when a car driven by 24-year-old Desiree Christian, of Montclair, rear-ended his cruiser. Both vehicles were damaged in the accident, but neither driver required medical attention.

Christian was charged with drunken driving and careless driving. It wasn’t known Tuesday if she has retained an attorney.
