Two San Francisco police cars crashed into each other in the Mission District this afternoon.
Around 3:15 p.m. police were trying to stop a vehicle near 18th and Mission streets, according to police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza.
Another patrol unit responded to the area and there was a traffic collision, Esparza said.
At least one person was transported to the hospital, he said.
He did not know if the injured person was a police officer.
Part of Mission Street was closed and service on the 49-Mission/Van Ness, 14-Mission and 33-Stanyan bus lines had to be re-routed, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency spokesman Paul Rose said.
As of 4 p.m., Esparza said the street was due to reopen shortly.
