Driver arrested after SUV strikes Warwick police officer

A police officer in Warwick is recovering after he was hit by an SUV while trying to direct traffic during a late-night power outage.

Warwick Police Capt. Brad Connor said the driver of the vehicle that hit the officer on Sunday night has been charged with driving under the influence and refusing to submit to a chemical test.

Connor says the driver, Warwick resident Thomas Horne, was taking a left onto Warwick Avenue from Sandy Lane when he crossed into the direction of oncoming traffic and struck the officer.

It's unclear if Horne has a lawyer who can comment on his behalf.

The officer was treated for a leg injury and released from the hospital several hours later on Monday morning.
