BRIDGEPORT - Police say a Bridgeport officer responding to an early morning call at a night club was hospitalized Monday following a crash.

The accident occurred at the intersection of Barnum Avenue and East Main Street just before 2 a.m. Investigators say Officer Thomas Gallbronner's car collided with another vehicle.

Bridgeport police say the traffic division is investigating the crash. Investigators are uncertain if Gallbronner had his lights and siren on at the time of the incident.

Gallbronner was listed in good condition at Bridgeport Hospital Monday night after having surgery for a head injury. The driver of the other vehicle escaped with a minor leg injury.
