Man Badly Hurt After Being Hit By Cruiser In Framingham

FRAMINGHAM (AP) — A man is in critical condition after being hit by a police cruiser on a Framingham street.

Police say officer James Wright was responding to a non-emergency call at about 12:50 a.m. on Saturday when the man

stumbled onto Waverly Street and Wright hit him.

Police told the MetroWest Daily News that the man, whom police did not identify, appeared to be intoxicated.

They say the man apparently struck the cruiser windshield before falling to the ground with a head injury. The man was flown to a local hospital.

Police told the paper they were unsure how fast officer Wright was going at the time of the accident.
