Two Baltimore Police officers and a young police explorer were injured near an M&T Bank Stadium parking lot on Thursday night when the police van they were in was struck head on by an oncoming vehicle, police said.

The collision occurred about 10 p.m. at the intersection of West Ostend and Warner streets, at the south end of the Ravens football stadium, police said. The driver of the oncoming vehicle was also treated for minor injuries, police said.

Both officers and the explorer — a participant in a departmental education program for youth aged 14 to 20 — were taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center with what were believed late Thursday to be non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The explorer was transported for "precautionary measures" only and was expected to be released quickly, police said.

The officers' condition was reported as "stable."

More information, including what caused the collision, was not immediately available.
