DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A Florida Highway Patrol car parked by the side of Interstate 4 was hit while the trooper was investigating another crash.

FHP reports that Trooper Ronald McKelvin had parked his patrol car on the shoulder with its lights on in Volusia County Tuesday.

He was outside the car when 46-year-old Julie Osowiecki reportedly lost control of her car and hit the rear of the patrol car. She was taken to an Orlando hospital with minor injuries. The trooper was not hurt.

FHP says charges are pending.
