Two people are charged with trying to escape police in a stolen vehicle Tuesday, causing a crash in the Pilsen neighborhood that injured them and a Chicago police officer.
The suspects stole the vehicle about 11:50 p.m. in the 700 block of West 21st Street, police said previously. They led officers on a brief chase after they realized they had been spotted.
The stolen vehicle then crashed into a squad car and pole, injuring two people inside as well as an officer who was inside the police vehicle.
Two male juveniles and a 20-year-old man were arrested following the crash, police said.
One juvenile was charged with felony counts of possession of a stolen vehicle and aggravated fleeing, as well as misdemeanor criminal trespass to a vehicle, police said. He was also cited for driving without a license or insurance.
Another juvenile was charged with criminal trespass to a vehicle, police said. The 20-year-old man was released without being charged.
Further details were not released because of their ages.
