Four cops were injured after two police vehicles collided with each other rushing to the same job in Brooklyn Thursday night, authorities and police sources said.

The crash involved a marked and unmarked vehicle at the intersection of East 24th Street and Avenue Z in Sheepshead Bay around 9:40 p.m., police said.

Officers were responding to reports of shots fired along Nostrand Avenue, the NYPD said.

After the two vehicles collided, one of them careened into the fence of a home, police said.

Officers were seen being wheeled to ambulances on stretchers on the way to the hospital. The injuries were minor, police and sources said.

The front bumper of the marked NYPD police cruiser was mangled and the unmarked car had considerable damage on the driver’s side.
