LONDON — Two UK police officers are seen on tape being hit by a car as they chased rioters suspected of looting.

The green Citroen knocked both officers to the ground early Monday morning after they arrived to answer a call about looters who had hit a clothing store in northeast London,according to ITN.

One officer injured his leg and knee, and the other his shoulder, a spokesperson said. Both were treated at the hospital and are currently recovering at their homes.

Investigators hope the release of the footage will help identify the driver.
