Two Buffalo police officers suffered injuries just after 10 a.m. today when their patrol vehicle was involved in an accident with a second car on the westbound Kensington Expressway near the Grider Street overpass.

The Northeast District officers were transported to Erie County Medical Center to be examined, according to police spokesman Michael J. DeGeorge.

For a short time, the entrance way onto the nearby westbound Scajaquada Expressway from the Kensington was shut down, but has since reopened, DeGeorge said.

In addition, another crash this morning on the Scajaquada resulted in the closure of the westbound entrance ramp at Nottingham Terrace, near Delaware Avenue. Authorities said there did not appear to be serious injuries in that accident.
