An aide from Brown’s Senate office was at the wheel of the other vehicle, with the senator and his wife riding as passengers.

Initially, police said no one was cited in the accident.

The police report indicates that Brown’s aide, Christopher P. Burgoyne, was traveling north on Sprague Street when the other driver attempted to turn left from a side street - Alden Street - onto Sprague without slowing down, according to witness accounts.

The impact caused the SUV to strike a utility pole, the police report said.

No one was injured, but an NStar pole sustained damage in the crash, according to the report.

At Dedham House of Pizza Saturday, a man who identified himself as an owner but gave his name only as George called the accident unfortunate but said he was glad no one was hurt.

“That’s that, and we’ll just let the insurance process take its [course],’’ he said by phone. “We’re just happy that Senator Brown’s safe and our driver’s safe as well.’’
