Ten people were injured, including two children, after an NYPD vehicle collided with a car and crashed into a Bronx sidewalk Thursday afternoon, authorities said.

The collision happened at about 3 p.m. EDT near the intersection of Hoe and Westchester Avenues, which is a little more than two miles east of Yankee Stadium, police said.

A total of 10 people were injured, NYPD Chief of Patrol Jeffrey Maddrey told reporters. The victims include a 65-year-old, a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old, Maddrey said.

Two police officers were also among the injured, the FDNY said.

Two officers were in their marked vehicle when it ran into a civilian's car and "as a result of the collision, the police vehicle mounted a curb and struck multiple pedestrians," according to an NYPD statement.

The seriousness of their injuries was not immediately known.

The officers were responding to larceny call when it was cut off in traffic, NBC New York reported.
