A DEA special agent was seriously injured after trying to stop a drug dealing suspect in a car as it entered a gas station in Chicago’s Ashburn neighborhood, the Chicago Tribune reports.
The fleeing car struck the agent, causing head injuries and a broken leg.
The agent, whose identity has not yet been released, was in serious critical condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn on Sunday evening but has been improving.
Local police and the DEA were pursuing the suspect because of information that the driver was transporting cocaine.
At least one man is in custody in connection with the case.
