An officer was injured Monday after being dragged by a vehicle on the South Side.
Officers were conducting a traffic stop on a white Chevrolet Impala about 8:10 p.m. in the 9500 block of South Lafayette Avenue when the car sped off, dragging an officer by the driver’s side door, Chicago police said.
The Impala struck a pole at the 95th/Dan Ryan Red Line station, causing the officer to be ejected from the door and strike a fixed object, police said.
The officer was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn with non-life threatening injuries, according to police. Chicago Fire Department officials said the officer was in serious condition.
Two people were taken into custody, police said.
