Two Chicago Police officers were hurt when their squad SUV slammed into another vehicle while responding to a Humboldt Park neighborhood shooting late Sunday on the West Side.

About 11:15 p.m., a 22-year-old woman was standing on a sidewalk in the 1100 block of North Hamlin when she heard gunfire and realized she’d been shot in the right leg, police said. She later showed up at Norwegian American Hospital and was listed in good condition.

Officers driving south to the scene on Hamlin with their emergency lights activated crashed into a car at the intersection of Hirsch, sending the squad vehicle into a parked car, police said.

The officers suffered minor injuries and were taken to a hospital in good condition. The driver of the other car was ticketed for failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, police said.
