Eight people were injured, four seriously, in three-vehicle crash that injured an officer in his police vehicle in the Chatham neighborhood this evening, officials said.
The crash near 80th Street and Indiana Avenue left a Pontiac sport-utility vehicle on its roof and also involved a Ford Fusion and a Dodge Intrepid, said Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford, who was at the scene of the crash this evening. Video from the scene showed the Fusion was an unmarked police car.
Initial reports indicated the SUV may have been fleeing police, run a red light and struck the Dodge, and that the officer's car may have also struck the Dodge after the SUV hit it.
