Three Chicago police officers were injured early Sunday after a suspect who had fled from police crashed his vehicle into a police cruiser.

The suspect, who had initially failed to yield to officers after being observed speeding and driving on a sidewalk, struggled with officers after they tried to take him into custody following the crash. 

The unidentified suspect was shot by an officer and transported to a local hospital where he was said to be in critical but stable condition. The suspect was described as a male in his 40's with an outstanding warrant.

The injured officers were expected to recover.
