A woman and two Los Angeles police officers were injured when their cars collided today in Venice, authorities said.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Venice Boulevard and Glyndon Avenue around 12:20 a.m. All three accident victims were transported to hospitals.

"The two officers are still at the hospital being reated for their injuries, but I don't know their current cnodition," Lt. Paula Kreefft, a watch commander at the Los Angeles Police Department's Pacific Division, said before dawn. She said the accident was not a result of a police pursuit or response to a call for service.

Officer John Farish of the LAPD's West Traffic Division, which was investigating the crash, said the squad car was traveling on Venice Boulevard "when a woman tried to enter onto Venice from Glyndon Avenue, where there is a stop sign."

"The final report will have to sort out who was at fault," he said.
