BRANFORD — A North Haven man was charged with DUI Wednesday after police said his vehicle collided with a Branford police cruiser.

Joseph O’Keefe, 30, of North Haven, was also charged with failure to drive right. 

O’Keefe’s vehicle crossed over the double yellow line around 11 p.m. and struck a cruiser being driven by Officer Michael O’Connor near Shore Drive, police said. 

O’Connor was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries. 

“Let’s work together to keep our roads safe, so everyone, including emergency services personnel, can get home safely,” Branford Police said in a statement.
