CHICAGO, Ill. — Two Chicago police officers were taken to a hospital Sunday afternoon after a man trying to steal a construction truck from a vacant lot on the city's North Side rammed his pickup truck into their sedan, police officials said.

The man, whose identity was not released, then sped south along Ashland Avenue and hit two additional cars near Wrightwood Avenue before he was taken into custody, police said. Charges have not yet been filed, police said.
