MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Milwaukee Police now say a mini-van was stolen just before it hit a police transport van overnight.
Four officers were injured in the crash, which occurred around 3:30 a.m. Monday at a north side intersection.
Three of the officers were released from a hospital by late morning. The fourth was still being treated for non life-threatening injuries.
The police transport van was carrying a female prisoner. She did not escape, despite earlier reports to the contrary -- and she was not injured.
Three people in the stolen mini-van did run off, and they were arrested after a chase. The police transport van struck a light pole after colliding with the mini-van.
