DENVER — Three Denver police officers and a civilian were severely injured after a car struck a police vehicle Saturday night, police said.

The incident happened at 16th Avenue and Logan Street, according to a police spokesperson.

There were no life-threatening injuries but some of the victims had serious bodily injuries, police said. It was unclear whether the incident was related to the nearby protests that took place downtown Saturday night.

Police were searching for the suspect vehicle, a Chevrolet Cobalt or Cruze with the Wyoming license plate No. 59722. The Chevrolet car might have extensive front-end damage, police said.

Anyone with information about the vehicle is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).

More than a dozen police vehicles could be seen at the emergency entrance to Denver Health hospital about 11:45 p.m.
