CHICAGO -- Conflicting accounts are emerging in a rollover crash involving a police SUV.

It happened just after midnight at Congress and Homan.

Investigators say the officers were driving north on Homan, when a Sedan hit it, flipping it over.

Two officers were hurt, thee others in the car also had injuries.

But the family of the 19-year-old woman who was driving, Tashawna Anderson, says they were hit by the police.

"We got the red light.  The light turned green.  She hit the gas..... The cop just came out of nowhere, out of a red light and just smacked us," said Kerry Holomon, a passenger in the crash.

The officers are expected to recover.

The people in the car sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

Citations are pending.

      I hope you realize that based off the damage done to both vehicles, there is no way that the police car struck the Infinity. The police car has side damage, and no front end damage. That means that the police car took the hit. On the other hand, the Infinity has front end damage, indicating that it was the perpetrator.

      It does not take a scientist to figure that out. The police car was hit, it did not hit anyone.

      Horrible attempt to make the police look bad.
