East Garfield Park crash, pursuit leaves two officers injured

Two officers were injured in a crash and subsequent foot chase in the East Garfield Park neighborhood Friday night.

About 9:50 p.m., a squad car traveling south on Homan was hit by an eastbound vehicle that ran a red light at Lake, police said. One officer suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the crash and was taken to an area hospital.

After the collision, two people in the vehicle ran off, but were eventually taken into custody, police said. During the pursuit, another officer suffered minor injuries.

Charges are pending against the two people.
