Two police patrol cars sustained significant damage when they collided early Monday in Lakewood, officials said.

The crash happened at the intersection of Bellflower and Del Amo boulevards around midnight.

Two deputies, in separate squad cars, were responding to a 911 call about a man slashing tires and threatening people with a knife on Briercrest Avenue. When one of deputies stopped to figure out which way to turn, the other deputy rear-ended the cruiser.

Neither of the deputies was injured during the collision, but both cars were damaged.
