CHICAGO (WLS) -- Two Chicago police officers were injured in a hit-and-run early Thursday morning in South Austin.
A marked patrol vehicle was traveling east just before 1:40 a.m. in the 5000-block of West Lake Street when a black Dodge Charger going north on Lavergne Avenue blew a traffic signal and plowed into the CPD vehicle's passenger side, Chicago police said.
The driver of the Charger fled the scene.
The officers were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, CPD said.
No one was in custody later Thursday morning, and Area Four detectives are investigating.
