3 Cops Hurt in NYPD Van Crash in Queens

Three officers were injured when an NYPD van crashed into a utility pole in Queens Wednesday afternoon, police say.

It's not clear how the van ended up slamming into the pole in St. Albans. 

The front right side of the van was crumpled in against the pole, right in front of what appears to be a bodega, Chopper 4 over the scene shows. 

The officers' injuries were minor and they're expected to be OK, police said.
