A Corinth woman has been charged with driving into a utility pole, then heading the wrong way on Interstate 95 and crashing into a State Police cruiser, setting it on fire. State Police arrested McKenzie Kaphammer, 22, on Thursday night on charges of operating under the influence of alcohol, aggravated criminal mischief, and other violations. Trooper Christopher Hashey tried to stop the car, which was heading north in the southbound lane of I-95, by driving parallel to it, officials said. He got ahead of the car and then got out of his cruiser, leaving it to block the car. Kaphammer crashed into the cruiser, officials said. Kaphammer was treated and released at a hospital and Hashey was not hurt.
