A Worcester, Mass. man is facing driving under the influence of alcohol, and other motor vehicle charges, after his pickup truck wound up atop a police cruiser early Sunday morning.

Police told the Worcester Telegram the driver, identified as Jimmy Ngo, 18, allegedly sped through an intersection, hit a car, rolled over unto its roof, slid, then struck a parked cruiser. The impact of the crash caused the pickup to complete its rollover, and landed on top of the cruiser.

The police officer, who was out looking for impaired drivers, as part of the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign, was not seriously injured.

Besides the drunk driving violation, Ngo was also charged with driving to endanger, speeding, and a red light violation.
