WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - One woman has been injured in a fiery crash that toppled a World War II monument in Massachusetts.

Police say Officer Jesse Bonardi was driving his personal car late Monday night when he was nearly hit head-on by a Jeep that later struck the monument in Worcester.

The officer enlisted the help of a bystander to get the female driver out of the vehicle. The woman was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Police say the driver was speeding and had a suspended license. She is facing several charges including operating to endanger and speed greater than reasonable. Police have not identified the driver.

City Councilor George Russell tells the Worcester Telegram & Gazette (http://bit.ly/2sCEPHK ) he hopes to get the monument repaired as soon as possible.
