One police officer remained in the hospital Monday following a collision in San Francisco’s Bayview District on Sunday evening.

Two patrol officers were injured in the crash at Phelps Street and Evans Avenue shortly before 5:20 p.m. when a 2004 white Lexus RX330 SUV driven by a 76-year-old man struck their patrol car, according to police.

The officers were taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that included cuts and complaints of pain to the head, neck and chest, but are expected to survive their injuries. One has since been released, while a second remained in the hospital as of Monday afternoon, police said.

The driver of the SUV remained at the scene and cooperated with police. No arrest in the case had been reported as of Monday morning.
