Two Philadelphia police officers are injured within a block of each other in Northeast Philadelphia thanks to two different allegedly drunk drivers.

One officer was on his motorcycle when a black car hit him at the intersection of Horrocks and Knorr streets.

The officer was not seriously hurt, and police said they arrested the driver for driving under the influence.

And the other accident involving an officer in the Northeast put a female police officer in the hospital. Investigators say, her cruiser was rear-ended near a shopping center.
