A driver hurt one person when they hit an Illinois State Police squad car that was responding to a crash on Interstate 94 in Lake County earlier last week. The accident happened on southbound I-94 near Deerfield Road in Deerfield.

When a 2014 Toyota Corolla refused to move over, the officer turned on their emergency lights and drove to the scene of the accident. State police say the Toyota hit the sidewalk wall on the left before hitting the cop car on the left side.

The officer wasn’t in the squad car when it crashed, so he or she wasn’t hurt. The Toyota passenger was taken to a nearby hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.
