Officials say nearly two dozen people are hospitalized after a Connecticut Transit bus and a police cruiser responding to a call crashed in New Haven on Monday.

Police say the cruiser had its siren and emergency lights on when it collided with the CT Transit bus just before 11 a.m. near the New Haven Green. They say 23 people who were on the bus, including the driver and several children, were taken to hospitals.

The officer, 19-year veteran Victor Herrera, was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Herrera was responding to a call for assistance from another officer at the train station.

New Haven police say it will likely take weeks or longer for the accident investigation to be completed.
