The accident happened on 51st Avenue, in the area of Baseline Road, as investigators said the officers were responding to a call for backup by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

The officers were driving south on 51st Avenue at about 12:30 a.m. with the emergency lights turned on, according to the Phoenix Police Department.
