CAMBRIDGE (WBZ-AM) -- A car crashed into a memorial for a police officer killed in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing early Thursday morning.

Police said a car driven by a 52-year-old came up over the curb, took out a small tree, and slammed into the Sean Collier granite memorial at Vassar and Main Streets in Cambridge. The crash left debris and fluids, which were being soaked up by sawdust that crews put down--but there appears to be no damage to the memorial itself.

The driver did not appear to be intoxicated, and their injuries were not life-threatening.

Collier, an MIT Police officer, was 26 years old when he was shot multiple times as he confronted the Boston Marathon bombers in 2013.
