FRAMINGHAM -- For the second straight day, a Framingham Police officer was involved in a car crash while on-duty.

Lt. Harry Wareham was not injured when a car rear-ended his police cruiser on Friday at 8:50 a.m., Deputy Police Chief Craig Davis said.

The crash follows an accident on Thursday when motorcycle officer Ken Blass, riding his motorcycle on Concord Street, crashed into a Ford SUV that had pulled in front of him.

In Friday's crash, Wareham was at the intersection of Franklin and Main streets when he stopped to allow someone cross the street in a crosswalk, Davis said.

When he stopped, a car rear ended the cruiser. Neither Wareham nor the driver of the car, who was not identified, were injured, Davis said. Both vehicles sustained minor damage, he said.

The accident remains under investigation and no one has been cited, Davis said.

In Thursday's crash, Blass was riding south on Concord Street when the SUV came out of Olive Street in front of him. Blass hit the side of the SUV around 3:45 p.m. and was knocked to the ground, Davis said.

Blass was taken to the MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham to be treated for scrapes to his arms, legs and chin. He was treated and released, Davis said.

The driver of the SUV, who was not identified, was not injured. The car sustained minor damage, while the motorcycle was towed.

Davis said that accident also remains under investigation and no one has been cited.
