A van that witnesses said ran a light at 19th and Arch Streets in Center City slammed into a police car Sunday afternoon and then plowed into a father and his 4-year-old son waiting on the corner.

Police said the 38-year-old father suffered a broken leg and was taken to Hahnemann Hospital. The boy was taken to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia for observation. The police officer also was taken to Hahnemann with back injuries. All were reported in stable condition. None were identified.

No charges were filed against the 55-year-old driver of the van. Police said the incident is still under investigation.
