A man and a woman in their 20s suffered serious injuries during a multi-vehicle traffic crash Sunday in the Vermont Square community of South Los Angeles that also ignited a vegetation fire at a vacant lot, authorities said.

A police officer suffered a minor laceration from the crash in the 5100 block of South Western Avenue, but declined transport to an area hospital, said Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Firefighters and paramedics were dispatched to the scene at 1:07 p.m.
