    An accident on a New Jersey highway injured a state trooper, authorities say. 

    State Police say the trooper was investigating an accident on I-195 westbound when his patrol vehicle was struck on the driver's side shortly after 8 a.m.

    It's not clear what caused the crash. The trooper was taken to Jersey Shore Medical Center with minor injuries.

    Chopper 4 over the scene showed the state police vehicle being towed away; it didn't appear badly damaged. 

    The condition of the other driver, in a Ford Windstar, wasn't clear. No arrest or summons has been issued.
