Two juveniles jumped out of a car and fled after they were told to stop by an officer at 11:14 p.m. Nov. 26 at the 1400 block of W. Fredonia Avenue.

The officer saw the juveniles driving the wrong way and tried to stop the car to talk to them, but the driver backed it up and hit two cars as it reversed.

The juveniles then left the car while it was still in drive, and the car rolled forward and hit the officer’s squad car. The juveniles tried to flee the scene, and officers located them in the bushes near Olin Hall.

The two students said they had been drinking and called another student to take the male to the hospital.

Later, the student said she was feeling dizzy from the fall, and an ambulance was called. The student was transported to UnityPoint Health Methodist.
