Minnesota police officer hurt in chase

A Minnesota police officer was recently injured while chasing an apparently stolen vehicle, Eyewitness News reported on July 19.

According to reports, a university police officer was chasing a vehicle on his motorcycle on Washington Avenue. The woman who was driving the vehicle reportedly did not stop. Then, upon reaching 13th Avenue, the woman made a sharp turn that caused several objects to fall from the trailer of the vehicle. The officer sustained a broken arm after sliding on his motorcycle in order to avoid crashing into the fleeing vehicle. Appropriate charges await the woman who was booked after the chase.
