LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two Los Angeles police officers are recovering from injuries sustained when their patrol car crashed into a wall during a pursuit.

Police Sgt. Matt Cundiff says the officers were chasing a domestic violence suspect when the crash happened late Saturday.

Both officers were taken to a hospital in stable condition. The extent of their injuries was not released.

The Los Angeles Times reports that police had responded to a call at a residence and spotted a man escaping from a second story window. The suspect took off in a vehicle.

The pursuit lasted about 13 minutes.

The suspect, whose name was not released, surrendered to other officers and was booked on suspicion of domestic violence and felony evading.
