WEST WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - Authorities say three people were injured after a garbage truck crashed into a police cruiser in West Warwick.

It happened around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday on Factory Street.

Police say an officer was responding to reports of a pedestrian hit and swerved to avoid a car that had cut him off. He then collided with a dump truck.

The officer and two occupants in the truck were taken to Kent Hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
