PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A woman is being treated for serious injuries after a police car backed into her in a Philadelphia park.

Capt. Sekou Kinebrew with the Philadelphia Police Department says officers were parked on the pavement in the park during an unrelated investigation Tuesday afternoon when an officer put his car in reverse and hit the woman.

She was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Her name has not been released.

Police have not identified the officer who hit her or say if he will face any discipline.

Kinebrew declined to specify what officers were initially investigating in the park.
