PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Providence police officer has been injured in a crash that investigators say was caused by a drunken driver who ran a stop sign.

Police say a woman driving a car with three passengers ran a stop sign at the intersection of Dean and Bond streets at about 1 a.m. Monday and struck a police cruiser.

The officer and two people in the other vehicle were taken to the hospital, but their injuries are not considered life threatening.
