Two police officers have escaped serious injury after being involved in a crash at Waterloo this morning.

They were driving along Lachlan Street when their caged truck and a tip-truck collided at the intersection with South Dowling Street, Waterloo, shortly before 4.30am (Saturday 25 March 2017).

The officers, from Eastern Suburbs Local Area Command, were responding on urgent duty to a domestic-violence incident when the crash occurred.

He was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital where he is undergoing tests for injuries to his left leg.

The driver of the police vehicle is being treated for minor injuries while the truck driver was not injured.

An investigation into the circumstances of the crash is now underway.

Anyone with information about the crash should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
