The crash was at about 12:55 a.m. near Manchester and Prairie avenues, Robert Diaz of the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.

The patrol car also struck a pole, a videographer at the scene said. The officers were taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries that were said not to be life threatening.
