BURLINGTON, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say two people have been injured, including a police officer, after a crash involving a police cruiser north of Boston.
Burlington police say Officer Robert Aloisi was responding to a report of a commercial burglar alarm Wednesday afternoon when his cruiser collided with another car at an intersection.
Aloisi and the driver of the other car were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say the officer’s lights and sirens were activated at the time of the crash.
They continue to investigate.
They say the burglar alarm was handled by other officers. It had been accidentally set off by contractors working in the building.
