MILWAUKEE (AP) – Three of four Milwaukee police officers injured in a traffic crash have been released from the hospital.

Police say the fourth officer continues to receive treatment for non-life threatening injuries.

The officers were transporting a female inmate when their van was hit by a minivan about 3:30 a.m. Monday at a Milwaukee intersection. Police say the inmate was not injured when the van hit a traffic light pole.

Authorities say the striking minivan was stolen. Its three occupants fled on foot and were arrested following a chase.
