MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police in Minneapolis are looking for a vehicle that rear-ended a squad car twice and then took off.

Officers said the squad was hit near 3rd Avenue and 7th Street in downtown Minneapolis around 4 a.m. Monday.

Two officers were in the squad.  They both complained of neck and back pain and were transported to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment but were released. Their injuries were not serious.

Police originally reported looking for a blue Jeep with front-end damage, but later said there was no description of the offending vehicle or driver.

The squad was disabled so it couldn’t chase after the suspect’s vehicle.
