A three-vehicle crash on Saturday in West Garfield Park hurt six people — including two police officers.

The officers were driving south in an unmarked vehicle about 5 p.m. on Kenton Avenue when a vehicle going west on Washington Boulevard struck the cruiser, Chicago police said. The impact forced the cruiser to collide with a third vehicle.

The officers had their emergency lights and sirens activated at the time of the crash, police said.

The two officers were taken to Stroger Hospital, the Chicago Fire Department said. Two others hurt in the crash were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition and another two were taken to Loretto Hospital in good condition.
