    A chain-reaction crash in Center City Philadelphia involved two police cruisers and left one officer hurt.

    A pickup truck traveling southbound on 21st Street Street struck a police cruiser responding to a previous call at the corner with Spruce Street around 9 a.m., according to Philadelphia Police.

    The cruiser then slammed into an unoccupied police cruiser, said investigators.

    The crash left three people hospitalized with what police described as minor injuries -- at least one of those injured is an officer who complained of pain after suffering some scrapes, said investigators.

    As SkyForce10 hovered overhead a short time later you could see the two police cars -- one sandwiched between the other and pickup truck. You could also see officers investigating the scene.
