CHICAGO — Illinois State Police troopers suffered injuries after almost getting hit by a car involved in an alleged theft, authorities said Tuesday.
It happened on 47th Street near the Dan Ryan Expressway in Chicago around 5:15 p.m.
ISP troopers attempted to stop a black BMW that fit the description of a vehicle stolen an hour earlier. State police approached the car on foot but the BMW fled after traffic cleared, causing damage to an ISP vehicle.
The troopers were able to avoid direct contact with the stolen car but still suffered injuries, ISP said. Chicago police officers later located the BMW in the 4100 block of S. Federal Street. A juvenile passenger was also taken into custody.
An investigation is ongoing.
SkyCam9 flew over the scene.
