A CPD van and an SUV reportedly collided at around 10:33 p.m. The crash occurred at the 9100 block of South Phillips Avenue near 91st Street.
The van reportedly overturned after crashing into a 2001 GMC SUV. Two male officers were injured and taken to a nearby hospital. The male driver of the GMC and his female passenger were both transported to Trinity Hospital for treatment.
The driver of the GMC was cited for not carrying a valid driver’s license. An ongoing investigation into the crash is currently in progress.

Chicago Rollover Crashes
Rollovers are serious accidents with great potential for serious injury. Each year, nearly 35 percent of deadly passenger-vehicle crashes involve overturned vehicles. 7,600 people were killed in rollovers in 2010 alone.
A majority of those killed in rollover crashes were unrestrained at the time of impact. Sometimes, the impact of a crash can cause top-heavy vehicles to overturn and cause serious injury to occupants. In some cases, injured victims can pursue lost compensation with the help of an Chicago car crash attorney.
