A Massachusetts police officer is recovering after authorities say he was rear ended in a drunk driving crash.
Twenty-four-year-old Ryan Macaluso of Abington is now facing charges of OUI and reckless operation of a motor vehicle.
The East Bridgewater police officer was stopped at a red light on the northbound side of Route 18 at about 1 a.m. Saturday.
Police say he was hit from behind by a Volkswagen driven by Macaluso.
That officer was hurt and taken to the hospital, but the injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
Macaluso is free on bail. He's due in court on Monday, and this is the second time he's facing an OUI.
