Two Detroit police officers were hurt in a crash Monday night on Detroit's east side, police said. 

The crash took place about 10:30 p.m. in the area of Balfour and Moross, said Officer Dan Donakowski, a Detroit police spokesman, and left the officers with "minor injuries." The crash happened north of Interstate 94.

A police scout car was driving northbound on Balfour, investigating a vehicle driving with bright lights, when it collided with a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup. 

Both officers were transported to the hospital for medical attention, and both were listed in stable condition at last report. One suffered a contusion over his right eye, and the other had a laceration to his right pinky finger.

The driver of the Dodge Ram, a 45-year-old man, refused medical attention at the scene.

Police are investigating.
