LONDONDERRY, N.H. (WHDH) - A pickup truck lost control and slammed into a state police cruiser on a snowy highway in New Hampshire on Friday morning, officials said.

Emergency crews responding to a report of a crash on the southbound side of Interstate 93 near Exit 4 in Londonderry around 11:20 a.m. found a damaged cruiser and smashed up 2020 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, according to New Hampshire State Police.

Police say a 16-year-old was behind the wheel of the truck when she lost control, spun around, and slid into the cruiser.
