Officers hurt by alleged drunk driver

Continue reading below

Two Worcester police officers were injured when a sport utility vehicle hit the back of their cruiser and drove away, leaving a crucial clue behind. Police say they were able to track down the driver because the SUV’s front bumper detached in the accident with the license plate still attached. The Telegram & Gazette reports that officers charged Daniel Fournier, 29 with offenses including drunken driving and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident. The officers were on patrol around 9:15 p.m. Sunday when the SUV ran into the cruiser hard enough to spin it around and snap off a wheel. The officers suffered injuries to their legs, neck, back, and chest. They were taken to a hospital, where they were treated and released. (AP)
