Four squad cars have been hit as troopers assisted motorists along Minnesota interstates and highways, including the most-recent crash Saturday when a trooper was rear-ended by a passing vehicle on Interstate 694.

The patrol says 10 squads have been struck this year. And, since 2010, 79 trooper squads have been hit.
