Four people including a 7-year-old were injured when a State Police vehicle crashed into another car Sunday afternoon in Waterbury.
A 2003 Toyota Tundra stopped for traffic in the left westbound lane on Interstate 84 three tenths of a mile from Exit 26 when a State Police Dodge Charger behind it didn't stop and rear-ended the car, the Tundra driver, 34, told State Police. There were two passengers in the Toyota, ages 7 and 35.
The state trooper, 44, driving the State Police vehicle involved in the crash told State Police that the car in front of him stopped and he couldn't stop in time.
Both vehicles were heavily damaged and the airbag deployed in the State Police car but not the Toyota, State Police said.
State Police have not said if there will be any charges or citations.
All parties were transported to St. Mary's Hospital in Waterbury to be treated for minor injuries.
