CHICAGO (WLS) -- Five police officers were taken to hospitals after a police vehicle rear-ended another Saturday in Englewood.
The two unmarked CPD units collided about 2:45 p.m. as they headed west in the 700-block of West 72nd Street, Chicago police said.
The officers were taken to nearby hospitals with injuries not believed to be life-threatening, police said.
It was not immediately clear how or why the crash occurred.
Two unrelated crashes involving Chicago police squad cars took the lives of bystanders earlier this summer.
Guadalupe Francisco-Martinez, or Lupe Franco, a 37-year-old mother of six, was struck in early June by a Chicago police squad car speeding through the North Side during a long pursuit throughout the city.
Mario Winters was riding a scooter in July, when an unmarked Chicago police SUV hit him near 118th and Halsted streets, killing the father of five children.
