    A police officer was hospitalized Tuesday morning in Massachusetts after another driver hit her cruiser in Tewksbury.

    The incident happened at about 6:45 a.m. on Route 133 near Cooney Road after a driver allegedly crossed the center median and crashed head-on with the officer.

    "We woke up to the crash," resident Adam Moldawer said. "We heard a couple of bangs as things bounced into each other."

    The officer and the other driver, who was identified as 21-year-old Jorge Joel Gomez Guzman of Lawrence, were taken to area hospitals for their injuries.
