Two Philadelphia police officers were injured after their cruiser crashed in Strawberry Mansion early Tuesday morning.

The accident occurred around 1:30 a.m. on Ridge Avenue near York Street.

Authorities say the officers were on routine patrol when they struck a large pothole that sent them into a construction gate and large pile of wood.

The construction site is part of the new SEPTA station being built at that location.

Both officers suffered minor injuries and were taken to Temple University Hospital for treatment.

They are listed in stable condition.
