BRIDGEWATER (CBS) — A K-9 officer and another driver were seriously injured in a crash Thursday morning.
The collision happened around 9:23 a.m., when police said a car pulled in front of the Hull K-9 cruiser driven by Officer John Mercer on Grove Street at Bedford Street.
The cruiser hit the other car, which then went into a telephone pole.
Bridgewater Fire said the Jaws of Life had to be used to get one of the drivers out.
Both Officer Mercer and the other driver were taken to South Shore Hospital trauma center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
Mercer’s K-9 partner, Kenny, was in the car, but was not hurt. The dog was taken to a local kennel.
The crash is still under investigation.
