Disneyland. The Happiest Place on Earth. The sound of the Disneyland Railroad steam whistle piercing the air. The wind blowing through your hair as you plunge into the darkness of Space Mountain. The aroma of popcorn as you stroll down Main Street U.S.A. The Magic Kingdom.  

Oh, and the crowds packed shoulder to shoulder in the summer heat waiting to see a parade, seemingly endless lines for a minute-long ride, paying $12 for a fast-food hamburger and soda and screaming children because they can’t have that Mickey Mouse shaped balloon that will float out of their hands shortly after you spend far too much money on it.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say two officers responding to a robbery call were injured when their patrol car collided with a pickup truck at an intersection.

City News Service reports the cruiser's red light and siren were on when the crash happened late Sunday in the West Adams area.

Sgt. Hendley Hawkins says both officers and the driver of the pickup complained of pain and were taken to a hospital to be treated. He did not know the extent of the injuries.

Hawkins says the officers were driving eastbound on Jefferson and the Nissan Frontier truck was heading northbound on Western.

The intersection remained closed early Monday as the investigation continued.
