SHARE CPD officers rescue two men from burning car in Gresham

Four Chicago Police officers rescued two men from a burning car after it crashed in the Gresham neighborhood early Sunday on the South Side.

The car was speeding in the 7700 block of South Loomis when it struck several parked vehicles about 2:20 a.m., police said.

One man had gotten out but two others were unconscious inside the car, which was on fire when the Gresham District officers arrived, police said.

They smashed the vehicle’s window to pull them out, and the men were taken to hospitals with injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening, police said. None of the officers were injured.
