    ABC 6 is on scene of a serious crash involving a Providence police officer. Sources have told us the officer's cruiser crashed into a utility pole on Admiral Street near Providence College in Providence. Witnesses tell us the officer was responding to a call.
    The accident happened around 9:30 Thursday morning. We're told the jaws of life had to be used to pull the officer from the cruiser. Rescue crews were giving the officer CPR on scene. The officer, who's identity is unknown at this time, was rushed to Rhode Island Hospital.

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) - A Providence police officer whose patrol car slammed into a utility pole on Admiral St. Thursday morning has died from his injuries.

    Providence's police chief, Col. Hugh Clements, confirmed Officer Max Dorley, 42, was pronounced dead at Rhode Island Hospital at 10 a.m.

    An eyewitness said Dorley - a 15-year veteran of the force - was going down the road with lights and sirens on shortly after 9:30 a.m. We're told two cars in front of the officer pulled to the side of the road. However, the officer had to swerve to avoid a third car, which the eyewitness said was making a left hand turn.

    The eyewitness said the police cruiser then jumped the curb and hit the utility pole. The front end of the cruiser was severely damaged and the pole snapped in half from the impact.

    It's been a bad month for cops nationwide. We've lost 2 in the past 3 weeks. And I know you guys up north have lost at least 3 in the past month. My thoughts and prayers for all my Brothers in Blue all over and especially you guys up towards New England. RIP
