A woman allegedly hit three Chicago police officers with her SUV Wednesday while intervening in a South Side traffic stop.

Shortly after officers stopped a driver at 11 a.m., Dawn Moore pulled up in an SUV and told officers she knew the man and demanded they release him, Chicago police spokeswoman Kellie Bartoli told Fox in an email.

Officers told the 30-year-old woman to leave, since she was blocking traffic, while they questioned the man regarding a minor traffic violation.

But instead, Moore drove her 2020 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon into a squad car, sideswiping it, and then tried to run over an officer, Bartoli said. Moore then allegedly made a U-turn and struck another squad car as an officer was exiting. She then drove off.

Three officers were taken to hospitals with injuries that were not life-threatening, Bartoli said.

Moore was arrested later Wednesday afternoon.
