HETTINGER, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a Wyoming man was intoxicated when he slammed into a trooper’s SUV in Adams County.

The trooper was conducting a traffic stop along Highway 12 west of Hettinger and wasn’t in his vehicle when it was struck about 6 p.m. Tuesday, according to the patrol.

Authorities said a Kia SUV driving by a 37-year-old man from Laramie was going west, crossed the eastbound lane and struck the patrol vehicle.

The man jumped out of his vehicle after the crash and began to run, officials said.

The trooper captured the driver and arrested him on possible charges of driving under the influence, driving after suspension and leaving the scene.

The driver was not seriously injured in the crash, according to the patrol.
