Three police officers were injured while pursuing a suspect in Allentown.

Around 2:30 p.m. Friday, officers were conducting a drug investigation near 4th and Allen streets.

When police tried to stop a car of interest, the vehicle fled.

The suspect struck two police cruisers in the 500 block of West Linden Street and a police officer who was on a bike.

Authorities say the suspects continued to flee and went through a construction fence before jumping out of the vehicle at 6th and Gordon streets.
