A man in a stolen white Toyota Celica drove at about 20 m.p.h. into a group of police recruits jogging on Park Row Drive near the Los Angeles Police Academy Friday afternoon, striking several of the trainees before fleeing, authorities said.
Two of the recruits were taken to White Memorial Medical Center, where they were treated for minor leg injuries and released, according to Officer Margie Reid, a Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman. One or two other recruits suffered slight injuries, she said.
The driver of the vehicle, who was in his mid-20s, appeared to be alone, Reid said.
