ST. LOUIS COUNTY - Two St. Louis County police officers are hospitalized with serious injuries after a crash in north St. Louis County.

Police say the two officers, a man and a woman, were both in one vehicle when the accident happened. The cruiser was heavily damaged when it collided with a Chevy pickup truck. Police say the driver of the truck was also hurt, but only with minor injuries.

There's no word yet on what caused the crash or who was to blame, but it happened at the area on Dunn Road where drivers wanting to use the entrance ramp to I-270 have to yield to on-coming traffic.

It appeared the truck was trying to get onto the interstate and the police cruiser was the on-coming traffic.

Although the officers' conditions are considered serious, a police spokesman say he does not believe the injuries are life-threatening.
