Police were looking Wednesday for two men who slammed their vehicle into the back of a patrol car in Mid-City and fled.

The vehicle struck the patrol car about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday near Fairfax Boulevard and Whitworth Drive, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The two officers in the patrol car were treated at a hospital for neck and back pain, said Officer Sara Faden.

One officer was still being treated Wednesday and the other had been released.

Police cordoned off a large section of the area surrounding the scene to search for the suspects, who abandoned their vehicle and fled on foot after the collision, Faden said.

The search ended early Wednesday morning and the suspects remained at large.
