A Philadelphia Police officer is in the hospital after an SUV slammed into his or her vehicle, according to officials.

The 35th District Officer was driving westbound on Champlost and Front streets at 7:09 p.m. Sunday when a Black Ford Expedition traveling southbound on Front Street struck the front end of his or her vehicle. The impact caused the police vehicle to crash into a telephone pole.

The officer was taken to Einstein Hospital. Officials have not yet revealed his or her condition. A driver and at least one passenger inside the Ford Expedition complained of neck and back pain and were also taken to Einstein.
