A Hickory Hills woman is charged with leaving the scene of a crash early Thursday that injured two police officers.

The two Hickory Hills officers were in a squad car in the 7800 block of West 93rd Street about 1 a.m. on Feb. 6 when a woman driving a 2014 Audi without headlights on veered into their vehicle, according to police.

Olivia D. Aguilar, 22, of the 7900 block of West 93rd Street in Hickory Hills was charged with two counts of aggravated battery of a peace officer and one count of leaving the scene of an accident, all felonies, Cook County State’s Attorney’s office Stephen Campbell said.

She also faces a misdemeanor DUI charge and was ticketed for driving without headlights when required and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, according to police.

She was being held in the Cook Couty Jail on a $10,000 bond and will next appear in court Tuesday, the state’s attorney’s office said.

Both officers and the other driver were treated for injuries at Palos Community Hospital in Palos Heights and later released, police said previously.

The squad car was totaled, and the Audi sustained extensive damage, police said.
