    The officers were transported to a nearby hospital with injuries that weren't considered life-threatening.

    Two Chicago police officers were hurt Sunday night in a rollover crash in the city's south side Calumet Heights neighborhood.

    The officers were responding to a call and heading northbound in the 8800 block of South Jeffery Boulevard about 10:45 p.m. when a woman driving a silver sedan westbound on 89th Street collided with the police SUV in the intersection, police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said.

    The force of the crash smashed the police vehicle into another SUV near the intersection, with the squad car flipping over, Alfaro said.

    The two officers were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, he said.

    The woman, whose age was not immediately known, ran away from the crash scene, but she was later arrested at her home, police said. Charges are pending against her.

    The police Major Accidents Investigation unit was handling the case.
