COLUMBIA, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut state trooper responding to a report of a domestic violence incident has been injured after crashing into a tree and destroying her cruiser while driving to the scene.

A police report released Saturday shows that trooper Stacy Clark suffered injuries to the left arm. She was taken by medical helicopter to Hartford Hospital. There were no immediate details on her condition.

The police report shows that Clark, who lives in Middletown, went off the road and shoulder before her vehicle struck a tree with its left side in the town of Columbia late Friday night.

State police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said on Saturday that the police cruiser suffered heavy damage on the entire left side.

A state police sergeant based in Colchester is investigating the incident.
