Hopkinton, n.h. — State police are applying for a search warrant to review a 21-year-old Dartmouth College student’s cellphone records after he sideswiped a cruiser on Friday morning on Interstate 89 southbound in Hopkinton, authorities said.

George Anthony Day-Reiss, of Salisbury, Conn., told police he was driving between 75 and 80 mph when his 2003 Saab hit the cruiser, which was parked in the breakdown lane with its emergency lights activated, according to a New Hampshire State Police news release.

The trooper, who was performing a traffic stop around 8:30 a.m., was outside of the vehicle when it was hit. No one was injured.

Both vehicles suffered “disabling” damages and were towed, the release states.

Police said they want to obtain Day-Reiss’ cellphone records as part of the investigation. Day-Reiss hasn’t been charged with a crime.

Day-Reiss is a senior at Dartmouth College, according to his LinkedIn profile. A message sent to his Dartmouth email was not returned on Friday.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to call state police at 603-271-3636.
