Two Buffalo police officers were treated for minor injuries at Erie County Medical Center Friday morning, after their patrol car was struck by a taxicab on the city’s West Side earlier in the morning, police officials reported.

The collision occurred shortly before 1 a.m., at Lafayette Avenue and Hoyt Street, three blocks east of Grant Street.

The northbound patrol car was struck by a westbound cab that failed to stop at the stop sign on Lafayette, according to police reports.

Charges are pending against the taxi driver, police said.
