Two Chicago Police officers were among four people hospitalized Monday night after a West Englewood neighborhood crash on the South Side.

The officers were pursuing a suspected robber in a Hummer SUV when the vehicles collided about 8:30 p.m. near 67th Street and Marshfield Avenue, according to Chicago Police and the Chicago Fire Department.

The two officers were taken to a hospital in serious condition, authorities said. Two other people were also at hospitals in good condition. None of the injuries were thought to be life-threatening.

The male suspect remained in police custody at Mount Sinai Hospital Tuesday morning, and charges against him were pending, police said.
