CANTON, Mass., Nov. 19 (UPI) -- Massachusetts State Police said a woman who crashed into a police cruiser said she lost control of her car because of a sneeze.

The woman told police she lost control of her car while sneezing.

The woman was not injured in the 5:20 p.m. crash. A trooper who was inside the cruiser was taken to Norwood Hospital as a precaution.
