Woman killed in crash by fleeing drug suspects

CHICAGO (KWWL) -- A 42-year-old woman from Chicago was killed on her way to work when two drug suspects fleeing from officers crashed their minivan into her car, police say.

Authorities say the woman's car was one of two vehicles the van crashed into Tuesday morning after striking two undercover police cars in an apparent attempt to run down several officers.

Police say officers riding in the two cars got out of their vehicles at a South Side intersection and approached the minivan, but the two men inside threw it into reverse and tried to hit them. They then struck the police cars and fled, striking two other cars.

The men were arrested a short distance away.

The woman's name has not been released.
