Four Detroit police officers and three civilians are recovering from injuries after two scout cars crashed into one another before one of the vehicles hit three other cars late Friday night on the city's east side.

It was about 10:23 p.m. when police responded to a 911 call about a foot chase in the area of East McNichols and Gratiot. 


Two police cars were in the area. One was traveling south on Gratiot and turned right onto westbound McNichols, and collided with another scout car on McNichols. According to Detroit police, a driver of one of the scout cars "lost control of their vehicle and struck three other vehicles that were traveling through the intersection."

All of the officers required medical attention and were listed in stable condition at last report. 

Three civilians --  a 30-year-old woman, a 66-year-old woman, and a 21-year-old man -- were injured and all are listed in stable condition.

Police did not immediately know if the suspect from the foot chase was ever caught.
