Two women were injured early Thursday when police tried to curb a car which sped away and crashed into another car in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.
Chicago Police officers watched a drug transaction about 12:10 a.m. in the 3900 block of West Lexington, police said.
They followed the car, which sped away and then struck a Chevrolet car about two blocks away in the 600 block of South Independence, police said.
Two women who were in the Chevrolet were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
The 35-year-old man who attempted to speed away from the officers was the only person in his car and was not injured, police said. He was taken into custody and charges against him were pending Thursday morning.
