The intersection of Boulevard and Trout Brook Drive was closed for more than four hours Thursday following a collision between a West Hartford Police Department SUV and a passenger car that sent both drivers to the hospital.

According to Sgt. Amanda Martin, a collision between the police department vehicle and car happened at the busy intersection at approximately 4:43 p.m. Thursday.

Details about the crash or the individuals involved were not provided, but police did say that other police officers and the West Hartford Fire Department responded to the scene, and both drivers were transported to area hospitals with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.

The West Hartford Police Department’s Traffic Division was investigating the incident, and the intersection – as well as several several blocks surrounding the intersection – remained closed for the duration.
