Two people were arrested after a crash with a squad car that injured two Chicago police officers Thursday in Cragin on the Northwest Side.

The marked squad car was northbound at 11:12 p.m. in the 3300 block of North Laramie Avenue when it was hit by a 2004 Ford Explorer that ran a stop sign, according to Chicago police.

The Explorer also hit a parked car before the male driver and a passenger got out and ran away, police said. They were taken into custody in a nearby alley and charges are pending Friday.

Two officers were taken to a hospital with injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening, police said.
