Authorities say two Massachusetts police officers who had pulled over a person suspected of drunken driving were struck and seriously injured by a second alleged impaired driver.

Officials say Deerfield officers Timothy Boland and Nick Limoges suffered non-life-threatening injuries at about 2 a.m. Saturday and are being treated at a hospital.

The two officers were on the side of Greenfield Road when they and their cruiser, which had its emergency lights on, were struck by the second driver, the Deerfield Police Department stated in a Facebook post. The injured officers were able to call for help.

"State Police placed the operator of the motor vehicle that struck our officers... under arrest for Operation of a Motor Vehicle while under the influence of drugs," said the Deerfield police Facebook post. "The investigation is ongoing and that operator will face multiple charges at Greenfield District Court."

The driver's name has not been disclosed.

Authorities say the other driver who had been pulled over had a child in the car and faces multiple charges. That person's name also has not been released.
