CHICAGO - Four Chicago Police officers were injured early Sunday morning  when two squad cars crashed while chasing a stolen vehicle in on the Southwest Side.

The two police SUVs collided around 3:35 a.m. near the intersection of 26th Street and South California Avenue, just across from the Cook County Criminal Courts Building.  News Affairs says both SUVs were responding to the call of a stolen vehicle.

Two officers were transported to Mount Sinai Hospital, and two others were taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County for treatment. Their injuries were non-life-threatening.

Shortly after that crash, the stolen vehicle crashed into another police car blocks away in the 3100 block of South California Avenue.
