Police on patrol crashed a cruiser in Van Nuys early Saturday morning, according to the Daily News. The LAPD officer behind the wheel and his partner were being "checked out" following the crash but were not believed to be seriously injured.

The accident occurred at Fulton Avenue and Erwin Street just after 2:00 a.m. as the officer reportedly "swerved to avoid something in the road," according to Sgt. Marlon Lindsey of the Van Nuys Station.
