Hartford Police say the officer was responding to a call around 9:50 a.m. Thursday when the accident occurred. The cruiser appears to have been traveling on Laurel Street when a Pontiac driving on Capitol Avenue struck its driver's side.
Police say the officer was conscious and alert after the accident, but was taken to Hartford Hospital to get checked out. His name has not been released.
The woman driving the other car did not report any injuries. It is unknown if she will face any charges.
