Two Minneapolis police officers and four others were mildly injured when a squad vehicle and other car collided Monday night.

The department said on Facebook the squad was heading to an emergency medical call, and was "operating in emergency mode" going northbound on Fremont Avenue North at around 8 p.m..

At 36th Street North, a second car heading eastbound drove into the intersection, according to police.

It collided with the squad, which ended up crashing into an apartment building on the northeast corner of the intersection, according to the release.

Facebook users posted photos of the scene to the North Vent page and True North Minneapolis page. Here's one of them:

Two officers suffered minor injuries; four of the seven occupants in the other vehicle also suffered minor injuries. All were taken to North Memorial Medical Center, police said.

The department's post says failing to yield and alcohol use may be factors in the crash.

Google Street View shows no stops sign the direction the squad car was traveling, but there are stop signs when on 36th Street North heading east or west.
