LAPD cruiser hit by car in Brentwood while responding to backup call
The officers were responding to back up another police unit on a report of a stolen vehicle when they were struck about 6:55 p.m. near Santa Monica Boulevard and Barrington Avenue, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
"They spun out and struck some other cars," Officer Bruce Borihanh told The Times.
The LAPD cruiser came to rest next a wall. The officers were transported to a hospital, where they were treated and released, police said.
There was no immediate information regarding whether other injuries were reported. Investigators were at the scene Thursday night gathering evidence.
