    MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- New Hampshire State Police say a driver pulled over on a busy New Hampshire highway, ran onto the road and was struck by a tractor-trailer unit.

    He suffered serious injuries.

    Police responded to the man, who was lying in the middle of the road on Interstate 293-North in Manchester on Thursday afternoon.

    They shut down the northbound lanes and diverted traffic while the man was worked on. He eventually was taken to a hospital.

    Police aren't sure why the man ran into the road.

    They said the driver of tractor-trailer cooperated with investigators.
