The officers, all PCs, were injured and taken to Salford Royal Hospital.
A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: “A man has been summonsed for dangerous driving following a collision between a police car and a taxi.
“Warren Lewin, aged 30, from Trafford, a serving PC with GMP, has been summonsed for two offences of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
“He is due to appear before Preston Crown Court on November 5.”
