A police cruiser was hit by a car Saturday evening in east central El Paso, according to the El Paso Police Department.
The incident occurred just before 9 p.m. on the 5600 Block of Alameda Avenue. Officials said a dark colored sedan that was traveling east on Alameda Avenue made a north bound turn onto Glenwood Street and failed to yield the right of way to the police cruiser. The police car swerved to avoid the sedan and hit a fence of a mechanic shop as well as another vehicle.
Two officers were taken to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries.
The accident triggered a chain-reaction that ended with three other vehicles being struck in the shops parking lot.
Police said the sedan fled the scene.
