NASHUA, N.H. (AP) – New Hampshire State Police say a Nashua police officer who had just ticketed a speeder was struck Friday by a passing car.

State police say Officer Vincent Curtis – who is 47 – was treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries and is expected to be released.

They say he had ticketed a speeder from Massachusetts on the Everett Turnpike just before noon when another car struck his cruiser and both him and the car he had stopped. Curtis was knocked down.

He and the driver of the car that hit him – 53-year-old Susan Ngo of Nashua – were taken to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center. Police say she did not appear to be injured.

The investigation continues, but police say neither alcohol nor drugs appears to have been involved.
