Hudson man arrested for underage DWI after allegedly hitting state police cruiser

MERRIMACK — A 20-year-old Hudson man was arrested for underage DWI after he crashed into a state police cruiser on D.W. Highway early Saturday morning, according to police.

Erick M. Wayman-Baxter was also charged with (improper) conduct after an accident.

No one was hurt in the crash, which happened around 5 a.m.

State police said Trooper First Class Kieran Fagan was patrolling the highway northbound when a southbound vehicle crossed the double yellow lines into the path of his cruiser. Fagan pulled to the far right shoulder, but the vehicle sideswiped his cruiser and then continued on without stopping.

Despite the damage to his cruiser, the trooper was able to catch up to the vehicle about a mile later near the Greeley Street intersection, police said. Wayman-Baxter was arrested at the scene and taken to the state police barracks in Bedford for booking. He was released on bail and will be arraigned in Circuit Court, Merrimack District, on Jan. 9.
