Crashes Injure Four Cops
- Four police officers were injured early Sunday when their squad cars collided during a chase in the Little Village neighborhood on the Southwest Side.
About 3:35 a.m., Ogden District police officers were pursuing a stolen car near the 2600 block of South California when two assisting squad cars collided, police said, citing preliminary information.
Two officers each were transported to Mount Sinai and Stroger hospitals, police said. All had non-life-threatening injuries.
The stolen vehicle also struck another squad car in the 3100 block of South California, but no one was injured in that crash. Two people were arrested after that, and charges are pending against them, police said.
We understand all but one of the officers were treated and released. Best wishes for a speedy recovery and hopefully, the last officer returns home shortly.
