SAN DIEGO (CBS8) - A San Diego police officer was hospitalized Monday morning after a vehicle crashed into the back of his cruiser in Paradise Hills. 

The crash happened around 6 a.m. in the 6800 block of Potomac Street when a silver four-door Ford vehicle crashed into the back of a police cruiser which was pulled over the side of the road. The officer had pulled over shortly before the crash to finish paper work. 

Police say its unclear why the driver of the silver Ford lost control of the vehicle and crashed into the police cruiser. 

Both the police officer and the driver of the Ford were hospitalized with minor injuries. The driver is being screened for drugs and alcohol, however, police say the crash may have been the result of distracted driving.
