The collision happened about 5:30 p.m. in the 3700 block of North Cicero Avenue, Chicago police said.

The officers were responding to a call with their emergency lights activated when a Nissan Altima failed to yield the right of way and crashed head-on with the squad car, police said.

Police said the driver of the Altima refused medical attention and was issued a citation for failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.
