(FOX/ CNS) Two Los Angeles police officers and a civilian
motorist were treated for pain and released from hospitals after a police
cruiser crashed into a BMW and a taxi in Marina Del Rey.
The crash happened on Mindanao Way near the Marina (90) Freeway at 8:38
p.m. Sunday as officers were responding to a call about a woman with a knife,
said Sgt. Kara Nightingale of the Los Angeles Police Department's West Traffic
The officers and the BMW driver complained of pain and were transported
to hospitals to be checked out and treated, added Sgt. C. Clark, also of the
traffic division. The taxi driver and the taxi passenger apparently were not
injured, Nightingale said.
Another unit from the LAPD's Pacific Station responded to the call about
a knife-wielding blonde woman fighting with a woman who was on a bicycle,
said Lt. Marco Munoz of the LAPD's Pacific Station.
The site of the fight turned out to have been not in Los Angeles but in
Marina del Rey, and by the time Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies arrived,
the women were gone, Munoz said.
