Two conflicting stories have emerged about what really happened in a collision between a police SUV and a black sedan in Chicago’s East Garfield Park, which left five people, including two police officers, injured, ABC News reported.
Authorities said that just after midnight on April 17, a police cruiser heading north on South Homan Avenue was hit by a black sedan traveling west on West Congress Parkway. The police SUV rolled over onto its hood before it slid off-road and into an alley. However, one of the other car’s occupants, Kerry Holoman, insisted that the police squad ran a red light while chasing another car, causing it to hit them.
All of the occupants in both cars were transported to different hospitals for non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the black sedan, 19-year-old Tashawna Anderson, was issued a traffic citation. Police refused to comment about the allegations that the squad was at fault and said they are still investigating the incident.
