A Concord man is accused of rear-ending a New Hampshire State Police cruiser early Monday on Interstate 89 north in Hopkinton, which was at the scene of another motor vehicle crash.

Trooper Irwin Malilay was investigating an accident near Exit 5 about 6:15 a.m. when his cruiser was struck from behind by another vehicle driven by Mohamed Kamara, 38, of Concord, police said. The cruiser had its emergency blue lights on and Malilay had deployed several flares to caution passing motorists, police said.

Paramedics from Hopkinton Fire and Rescue evaluated Malilay and Kamara at the scene. No injuries were reported.

Kamara was cited for failure to move over for a roadside emergency vehicle.

Roads were slippery early Monday as a result of mixed precipitation that had fallen overnight.
