Below is a press release from the Massachusetts State Police:

BEDFORD, MA — On Thursday, August 12, 2021, at 2:39 pm, Massachushetts State Police Major Matthew Gravini pulled over a Nissan Altima on Route 3 westbound in Bedford. While stopped in the breakdown lane behind the Altima, the Major’s black Ford Police Interceptor was struck from behind by a Honda CRV SUV.

Major Gravini — assigned to the Division of Field Services as the commander of State Police Troop A — was in his cruiser when it was hit. The impact of the crash pushed Major Gravini’s cruiser into the right travel lane; the CRV then struck the Altima.

The operator of the Altima was not injured.

The reason for the initial motor vehicle stop was for traffic violations.

The crash remains under investigation.
