WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — An investigation is underway after a Warwick police cruiser crashed into the side of a home while responding to a call Tuesday afternoon.

Police said the officer was driving down Post Road in a marked cruiser when he rear-ended another vehicle in the area of Greene Street.

The impact forced the cruiser off the roadway and into the side of a nearby house, which sustained structural damage, according to police.

The residents told 12 News no one was home at the time of the crash.

Police said two people who were inside the second vehicle were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
