Chicago police arrested a woman after she hit an officer while trying to flee a traffic stop in Garfield Park Saturday night.
It happened around 8:10 p.m. in the 100 block of S. Pulaski Road when officers in an unmarked car pulled over a Jeep Grand Cherokee, authorities said.
As one of the officers approached the SUV, police said the woman attempted to drive away — striking the officer while doing so.
The officer was taken to an area hospital to be treated for a foot injury, authorities said. The injuries were non life-threatening, and the victim was said to be in good condition.
Police said the woman was taken into custody without incident.
