    There were two crashes on Interstate 691 this morning, one exit apart.

    In one crash, a state trooper’s cruiser was struck by another vehicle.

    Police said the cruiser was struck just before 9 a.m. near exit 4 and the trooper is OK.

    Another car rolled over in a separate case. No one was injured in that case either.

    The highway was backed up after the crash.

    This was the second crash this morning involving a state trooper.

    A cruiser that was blocking the ramp from Interstate 91 South to Interstate 95 North in New Haven was struck just after 1 a.m.

    Police said the driver who struck the trooper on the highway failed to yield for the police car, which had activated  emergency lights.
