A Chicago police officer was injured this morning when he was struck by car that then sped off on the South Side, authorities said.
The officer was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, police said.The officer was standing outside of his police car, conducting a street stop in the 7900 block of South Wabash Avenue in the Chatham neighborhood around 12:30 a.m., when the car hit him...
One of our commentators related that the officer was dragged almost 100 feet by the car. News Affairs is stating "non-life threatening injuries" if the media reports are accurate. That's all well and good that we aren't attending a funeral and all, but Densey Cole ended up suffering what turned out to be "non-life threatening injuries" and he might never walk unassisted again. The officer shot a few weeks back in the leg was also "non-life threatening," but reports since suggest he has undergone and will undergo additional surgeries for knee damage that will leave him with a limp forever.
