Two Philadelphia police officers were injured when their patrol car slammed into a church van in the Parkside section of the city.

It happened early Sunday morning on the 5100 block of Bible Way.

Police tell Action News that the 19th district officers were responding to a call with their warning lights on.

As the vehicle turned off North 52nd Street, the driver lost control of the patrol car and smashed into a church van parked on the street. The van is owned by Greater Bible Way Church.

One officer was found bleeding from the head. Both officers suffered neck and back pains and were taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

No word what caused the officer to lose control.
