It happened near the corner of 52nd Street and 13th Avenue shortly before 10 p.m. Saturday. The NYPD says a police vehicle was driving with its lights and sirens on when a car crashed into it.

The vehicles went flying toward the southeast corner of a nearby building, striking pedestrians on the street.

Two 18-year-old women were treated for minor injuries. Both officers in the police car were also treated for non-life-threatening injuries. And officials say the driver of the other vehicle was also not seriously injured.

The NYPD says no charges have been filed in connection to the incident.
