Detroit police are investigating a crash involving one of its cruisers.

Investigators say Michigan State Police was involved in a chase late Wednesday when a Detroit police cruiser decided to head out to the scene.

That's when the cruiser crashed into a silver Jeep, unrelated to the pursuit, at Conner and Gratiot.

Two officers and two people were taken to a hospital.

A third passenger from the Jeep left the scene. However, he was eventually taken into custody, after police say he threw away a gun.
