    A Philadelphia Police officer responding to a robbery call at a Northeast Philly Wawa Wednesday morning crashed his vehicle, forcing a busy street to close as the morning commute began.

    The accident happened on Krewstown Road between Rising Sun and Bloomfield avenues around 5 a.m., officials said. Authorities closed that portion of the roadway as they investigated.

    The officer suffered minor injuries in the accident, according to Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small.

    He was taken to Aria Torresdale Hospital for treatment, said Small, who added he is expected to be okay.
