A driver has been cited after a crash with a squad car that left two Chicago Police officers injured Thursday night in the Logan Square neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

The officers were responding to a call about 10:45 p.m. and driving southbound with emergency lights on in the 2000 block of North Western when the squad car crashed into another vehicle driving westbound on Armitage Avenue, said police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer.

The officers suffered minor injuries and were taken to a hospital, Greer said.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 26-year-old man, was not injured. He was later issued traffic citations for failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, damage to city property and driving without a valid license.
