DEDHAM, Mass., April 14 (UPI) -- U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., was involved in a crash when a Jeep driven by an aide hit a telephone pole in suburban Dedham, police said.

Brown, his wife, Gail Huff, and his aide, Chris Burgoyne, were not hurt in the collision Friday night, The Boston Globe reported.

Burgoyne reportedly swerved when a delivery truck for Dedham House of Pizza emerged from a side street. The Jeep Grand Cherokee left the roadway and hit a pole.

Police said no one was given a summons. Neither driver appeared to have been drinking.

Brown and Huff, a former reporter for WCVB-TV, Boston, were on their way to a fundraising event for Best Buddies, an organization assisting people with developmental and intellectual disabilities at the time of the 8:28 p.m. crash. Earlier Friday, the couple were at Fenway Park in Boston for the Red Sox home opener.
