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.
