Two Los Angeles police officers were hospitalized today with minor injuries after their cruiser collided with another vehicle in Northridge, then sheered a fire hydrant, authorities said.
The officers were responding to a radio call, with their lights and sirens activated, when they collided with a Lexus at the intersection of Reseda Boulevard and Mayall Street around 10 p.m. Tuesday, said LAPD Sgt. Randy Modrell.
The intersection was not controlled by traffic lights, and the driver of the Lexus, who was uninjured, will not be booked, Modrell said.
Modrell said the LAPD cruiser sustained major damage, and its occupants were transported to a hospital after complaining of pain.
