A New Haven police officer who has been in a coma since being involved in a crash while answering a call in 2008, has died.
Officer Diane Gonzalez died Monday, according to New Haven police.
Gonzalez and Sgt. Dario "Scott" Aponte were responding separately to a report of a violent domestic dispute on Sept. 9, 2008, when their police cruisers collided at the intersection of Chapel Street and East Street.
Aponte was killed in the crash.
She was a 13-year-veteran of the force at the time of the crash.
Gonzalez is survived by her two daughters, her son, and her grandchildren.
