Two Chicago police officers were hurt when their squad vehicle crashed early Friday morning.

It happened near Foster and Meade on the city's Northwest Side.

Investigators say the officer behind the wheel thought he saw someone running in a nearby alley. When he looked in that direction he lost control of the SUV and struck a light pole.

The officers were taken to Lutheran General Hospital in stable condition.
