NEW BRITAIN, CT (WFSB) -

A police officer was involved in a crash in New Britain on Sunday morning.

Police said the crash happened on Farmington Ave around 8 a.m.

A tan Acura SUV reportedly pulled out in front of the officer in his police cruiser. Police said the SUV was being driven by a 13-year-old boy. Another person was inside the SUV, however that person fled from the crash.

Police said the officer involved was on his way to a call, not involving the Acura, when the crash happened.

The section of Farmington Avenue between Hayes and Biruta Street was closed for the investigation, however it has since been reopened.

Both drivers were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

No charges have been made at this time.

Anyone with information should contact police at (860) 826-3071.
