An accident involving a on Monday morning is still under investigation, Police Chief Dominic Panico told Elmhurst Patch Wednesday.
"I'm happy to provide any information that won't jeoparize the investigation," he said.
According to a report released Tuesday by Elmhurst police, the Ford Crown Victoria hit the brick wall of GMS Realty, 627 N. York Road, at 8:56 a.m.
Panico said the officer was driving on North York Road when he swerved to avoid hitting another vehicle that entered his lane of traffic. This caused the officer to lose control of his car, he said. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
Panico did not say whether the officer was in pursuit of someone when the accident happened.
"That's as much as I know now," Panico said. "It needs to be investigated at the supervisory level."
The officer was treated at the hospital for minor injuries sustained in the accident, and he has since been released, Panico said.
