MILWAUKEE — Four people, including police officers, were hurt in a crash that happened near Teutonia and Hope after a pursuit was terminated.

This all began shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday, March 31 when officers observed a black ford fusion with Wisconsin license plates traveling southbound on Teutonia at a high rate of speed. The vehicle disregarded three sets of lights on the main thoroughfare. Officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop at Teutonia and Atkinson.

The vehicle then disregarded the stop sign, cutting off a motorist, nearly causing a collision.

During the course of the pursuit, officers lost sight of the vehicle, at which point the pursuit was terminated.

Just before 2:30 a.m., a squad was involved in a crash. The officers and three occupants of the other vehicle suffered injuries not believed to be life-threatening and were taken to a hospital.
