VENICE (CBS) — A search was under way Monday for the driver of a sport utility vehicle who authorities say caused a police cruiser to crash, injuring two LAPD officers.

The accident occurred just before 2 a.m. near Washington Boulevard and Pacific Avenue on the border of Marina del Rey and Venice.

Police believe the squad car crashed into some bus benches and a wall after swerving to avoid another driver in a SUV who they say had made an illegal U-turn from a parking stall.

One of the two officers was unconscious following the crash.

Both were taken to area hospitals for medical treatment and were expected to be OK.
