SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities say three San Francisco police officers were injured when two police cruisers crashed into each other while responding to a call for backup.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/2oEUcB9 ) the accident occurred in the city’s Mission district Thursday night.

Sgt. Michael Andraychak says both cars had their lights and sirens on as they responded to the call about 10:45 p.m.

Andraychak says the cars collided, with one of the cruisers also smashing into a fire hydrant before coming to rest against a building.

All three officers were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Their conditions were not available Friday.

The crash remains under investigation.
