ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say an Albuquerque police officer responding to a call collided with another vehicle, critically injuring a woman and two children.

The woman and both children were taken to the hospital after the Monday crash. Police say the officer suffered a broken leg and broken ankle.

Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Deputy Felicia Romero said the children had been stabilized and remained in intensive care Tuesday. She had no other information to release since the investigation was ongoing.

Albuquerque police say the officer’s lights and sirens were on as he headed to a call involving a man armed with a machete at a grocery store.

The crash happened at an intersection as the woman’s vehicle turned in front of the police car.
