Five people, including two children and a Phoenix police officer were injured in a car crash Tuesday afternoon, according to Phoenix fire and police officials.

The crash occurred at 12th Street and Southern Avenue about 2 p.m., the Phoenix Police Department said.

A black sedan veered off the road after colliding with a marked Phoenix police vehicle and then hit a family of three walking on the sidewalk on the northwest corner of the intersection, Phoenix police said.

The pedestrians included two parents and a 5-month-old baby in a stroller.

The baby was pulled out from under the sedan and transported to a hospital with a broken arm, police said. The mother was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Phoenix fire officials said.

The black sedan was driven by a man whose 5-year-old daughter was in the car, police said. Both were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The officer, who has been with the Phoenix Police Department for more than 20 years, also was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The area was closed to traffic Tuesday afternoon while the crash investigation continued, police said.
