Police car involved in serious accident in Cranston
CRANSTON -- Paramedics took three people to the hospital this afternoon after a three-car accident involving a police cruiser outside the Chapel View shopping center, according to police.
A preliminary investigation by the Cranston Police Department’s accident reconstruction team found that an officer was traveling east on Sockanosset Cross Road around 12:50 p.m., responding to a breaking and entering call on Mapleton Street, when a two-door Ford exited the Chapel View development and collided with the officer's cruiser.
The Ford then collided with a third vehicle, a Jeep Cherokee, which was stopped in the left turn lane on Sockanosset, on the road's westbound side.
Paramedics took all three drivers to Rhode Island Hospital. The police department was withholding their names late this afternoon, as they attempted to notify family members.
The police say the officer involved was operating his emergency lights and sirens at the time of the accident.
