Tribune reporter

CHICAGO, Ill. — A pedestrian was seriously injured Tuesday night in a hit-and-run accident on Chicago's Far South Side. Afterwards, a Chicago police squad car blocking off traffic for the accident investigation was struck by another vehicle, leaving an officer slightly injured.

The male pedestrian, whom police would not identify, suffered a dislocated shoulder and was reported in serious but stable condition at Stroger Hospital of Cook County, Chicago police said early Wednesday morning.

The accident occurred about 11 p.m. on West 103rd Street and South Perry Avenue. Police could not provide a description of the striking vehicle or its driver. No one was in custody.

After the other crash, which was not a hit-and-run, the Calumet District officer was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries, police said. The cause of that crash was under investigation early Wednesday morning.
