    The driver of a car that crashed into a police squad car early Saturday received a handful of traffic citations, after she and two Chicago Police Officers were injured in the accident.

    Around 1:40 a.m., a car ran a red light and struck a police car at the intersection of 47th and La Salle streets, police News Affairs Officer Ronald Gaines said.
