Police are investigating after a serious crash in Warwick Friday afternoon.

Around 4:30 p.m., a pick-up truck collided with a car on West Shore Road. The car’s female operator and a baby in the back seat were taken to Rhode Island Hospital and Hasbro with serious injuries.

The driver of the pick-up truck, and the driver of a third vehicle that swerved to avoid the accident, each suffered minor injuries.

The road was closed for almost four hours as accident reconstruction teams investigated. The street has since be reopened.

Police are still unsure what caused the accident but do not believe alcohol was a factor.
