Two police patrol cars headed to a domestic violence call collided in New Haven -- killing one officer and critically injuring a second. Officials say the cruisers crashed at the intersection of Chapel and East streets at around 11:23 p.m. last night.

One of the vehicles apparently careened over an embankment, landing on its front end. The other landed on its side.

Eyewitness News is told Sgt. Dario Aponte sergeant died at an area hospital. Patrol Officer Diane Gonzalez was listed in very critical condition.

The officers were reportedly headed to a domestic violence call at the time of the crash.
