(INDIANAPOLIS) - Authorities say two Indianapolis police officers were slightly injured when their squad cars collided as one of them swerved to avoid a mattress on Interstate 70.

A police report says the officers were heading east to a call with their emergency lights flashing on the city's east side Friday night when Officer Daryl Jones spotted the mattress in the left lane.

The report says Jones was unable to move to the right lane because of a semitrailer there and collided with Officer Malachi West's car.

The Indianapolis Star reports both officers went to Methodist Occupational Health Center for treatment of pain. West also had cuts on his left arm.
