PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Two children were taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure Wednesday after a 27-year-old man crashed a Ford Fusion into a tree on Bellevue Avenue, authorities said.

The crash took place at the junction of Bellevue and Elmwood Avenue, said Providence police Lt. Ernest Forlini. The children, one 8-year-old and another less than a year old, were in the car at the time of the crash.

Three were no obvious injuries, Forlini said.
