A car crashed into a memorial for fallen police officer Sean Collier at Massachusetts Institute of Technology Thursday morning.

The crash happened around 1 a.m. at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Vassar Street.

The car left a large mark on one of the granite blocks that make up the memorial, which pays tribute to Collier who was killed in the line of duty in 2013.

Collier was shot multiple times in a late-night confrontation with the Tsarnaev brothers while patrolling the MIT campus days after the Boston Marathon bombing.

It is unclear what caused the crash or if any injuries resulted from it.
