ROGERS PARK — Two Chicago Police Officers were loaded into an ambulance after a four-door sedan and police SUV were involved in a crash in Rogers Park on Tuesday night, witnesses said.
A SUV and car were seen stopped in a bumper-to-bumper wreck about 7:40 p.m. in the intersection of North Sheridan Road and West Morse Avenue.
Andrea Smola, 23, and her brother Connel were walking with their backs to the intersection when they heard the crash.
"As soon as we turned, 'boom'," Connel Smola said.
Witnesses said the SUV was traveling north on North Sheridan Road and the other vehicle was making a left turn from Morse Avenue.
An officer at the scene said "it was just an accident" and that both vehicles had a green light.
The man driving the other car refused medical attention and was taken to the Rogers Park Police District headquarters to give a statement, police said.
Both officers were in stable condition and taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, according to the Chicago Fire Department.
Police had no further information on the accident as 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.
