UXBRIDGE â€“ An Uxbridge police officer Tuesday was injured in a crash police say was caused by a drunk driver on Douglas Street.
Officer Kevin Sullivan was on routine patrol just before 11 p.m. at the intersection of Douglas Street and Route 146 when his cruiser was cut off by another driver, causing the cruiser to crash into the car.
The crash left the cruiser disabled, but the driver of the car that cut Sullivan off, Roger Fournier, 34, of Woonsocket, fled the scene. He was apprehended a short distance away by Uxbridge Police Sgt. David Bergeron, who determined that Fournier was impaired.
In response to the seemingly never-ending heavy amounts of snowfall, Rhode Island Interscholastic League officials huddled up with high school basketball coaches last week and opted to extend the regular season by two days.
Good thinking, as Monday’s snowstorm brought with it a slew of postponed games and more headaches as far as rescheduling.
