- A crash on the city's Northwest Side injured two police officers and critically injured another man, officials said.
The crash occurred when police attempted to pull over a black van near West Belmont and North Long just after 1 a.m. Sunday in the city's Belmont Cragin neighborhood. The van resisted and sped off, running a red light and hitting a police car head-on, police said.
The van's 35-year-old driver was hospitalized in critical condition; the two officers were transported to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.
The van "resisted." That a new one on us. Were TRR's completed?
- "He was drunk and he didn't have a license," said Cameron Stegenga, a passenger in the van who spoke exclusively with ABC7. "But the cops even told us that if he would have stopped and said, 'Look, I'm drunk, we're going right here,' they would have let us go and none of this would have happened."
Really Cameron? And your basis for believing that was what exactly? Especially with in-car cameras, body cams, street cameras everywhere. Those days are gone.
- Stegenga said he watched his friend fly through the windshield.
Well then you'll have a great story to tell at the reunions we suppose. Best wishes to the injured officers after being rattled by these morons.
