A city police officer was injured Monday following a car chase in Lower Manhattan.
According to witnesses, police officers were chasing on foot a car going the wrong way down Elizabeth Street around 1 p.m.
That's when the driver turned into oncoming traffic on Bayard Street and at least one officer was struck.
Witnesses say the fleeing driver ran a red light and crashed into a yellow cab and a van.
NY1 has reached out to the NYPD for comment.
