ST. LOUIS — Four police officers from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department were involved in an accident Friday night.
It happened near 20th Street and Cass Avenue around 11 p.m. This is in the Carr Square neighborhood.
A police spokesperson said the officers were trying to pull over a car when they were hit by another car.
According to police, officers activated their lights and sirens to stop a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro and that's when the Camaro accelerated to get away from officers.
Additional responding officers deployed a tire deflation device, which deflated several tires. The Camaro still tried to get away and caused a 2019 GMC Denali to hit a marked patrol car.
The driver of the Denali sustained minor injuries, but refused medical treatment.
The Camaro was located abandoned in the 2300 block of Herbert.
All four officers were transported to a hospital with minor injuries and have since been released.
