A Concord driver was cited Wednesday morning when she ran a stop sign and struck a New Hampshire State Police cruiser, police said.

The cruiser, driven by Trooper Matthew Wolak, was traveling on Pine Street when it was struck by a 2013 Nissan driven by Mugisha Jackson, 42, of Concord. Police said Jackson failed to stop at a stop sign on Amherst Street, causing the crash. She was cited for disobeying a traffic control device.

Neither driver was injured in the crash, which was reported at about 10:21 a.m. Both vehicles were towed from the scene.

Earlier in the day Wednesday, police in Alton were also called to a two-vehicle crash involving a state police cruiser on Route 28. Sgt. Russ Holmes had slowed to turn onto Old Wolfeboro Road from Route 28 when his cruiser was struck from behind by a 1996 Ford Ranger driven by Calvin Cheney, 27, of New Durham, police said.

Holmes was taken to Concord Hospital for evaluation of his injuries.

Cheney told police that he was distracted and had reached for his cellphone just prior to the crash. The crash remains under investigation.
