PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A patrol officer was injured Saturday night when he swerved to avoid a vehicle and the police SUV he was driving jumped the curb and hit a brick building.
Police Chief Col. Hugh T. Clements Jr. said Sunday evening that the officer was responding just before 11 p.m. to a disturbance in progress, weapons involved, at the beginning of his shift.
He was outbound on Broadway, Clements said, when a vehicle emerged from the right. The officer swerved left, hitting a building at Vinton Street and Broadway, where signs say Mike the Tailor and direct deliveries to another address.
