    SHARON ó Vermont State Police say a trooperís cruiser was hit on Interstate 89 south near Sharon while the trooper had stopped to assist another vehicle.

    Police say Trooper Christopher Blais had activated his emergency lights and was sitting in his cruiser just south of exit 2 Wednesday when 44-year-old Alden Hall of Lebanon, N.H., crashed into him from behind.

    Police say the cruiser sustained significant rear-end damage and Hallís 2010 Toyota Highlander was towed away with extensive damage as well.
