Omaha, NE - Two people were taken to the hospital after a van hit a police car at 96th and L Street.

A police cruiser was on the way to help with a foot pursuit near 96th and F around 10:15 Monday Night. While driving through the intersection at 96th and L, a white van hit the police car's passenger side. Two other vehicles were involved in the accident, suffering only minor damage.

Medics took a police officer and the driver of the van to the hospital. Glass from the cruiser's window hit the officer in the face. The van driver suffered a broken leg.
