An LAPD officer was taken to a hospital after a carjacking suspect he was chasing crashed into a police cruiser in South Los Angeles early Saturday morning, officials said.
The crash happened around 2 a.m. in the area of 64th Street and Budlong Avenue in the Vermont-Slauson neighborhood of South L.A., according to Los Angeles Police Department officials.
Police were in pursuit of the vehicle for only about five minutes before the suspect pulled into a cul-de-sac, made a U-turn and slammed into an LAPD car, officials said.
The officer suffered only minor injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment.
The suspect, who police say was not injured, was taken into custody. LAPD said a gun was also found in the vehicle.
Video from the scene shows a damaged sedan crashed into a police vehicle as law enforcement personnel crowded the scene.
The injured officer appeared to be standing on his own and speaking with paramedics before they transported him to a hospital.
Officials did not identify the suspect and no further details were immediately available.
