Two NYPD cops were rushed to the hospital after their car collided with an FDNY tower ladder truck at the corner of Utica Avenue and Avenue N in Brooklyn.

Officials were told that members of Ladder Company 159 were responding to a fire call on the night of November 14 when they struck the unmarked police car as it came into the intersection.

While the fire truck was basically undamaged, the front of the police car was left a complete wreck, said witnesses. The two officers in the car pulled themselves out of the vehicle.

Members of the Flatlands Volunteer Ambulance Corps were on hand to assist the two officers, who were taken to the Kings County Hospital Trauma Center for treatment.

Their injuries were not considered life threatening, officials said.

No firefighters were injured during the collision.

As of this writing, the exact cause of the crash was still being investigated.
