PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Two suspects are in custody after a vehicle fled the scene of an accident involving a police officer in north Philadelphia.

Officials say a car with two men inside rear-ended a police cruiser at around 1:30 p.m. Friday and took off, leading to a chase.

Police tracked down the car and took one man into custody but the other man ran off. The second suspect was quickly captured inside a lumber yard warehouse a few blocks away.

Investigators said the officer whose cruiser was hit suffered only minor injuries.
