About 11:20 a.m. Wednesday, the three Area Central Gang Enforcement Division officers — Jameka Sherrod, 30; D’Wayne McGee, 36; and Brian McVey, 35 — were responding to a call when their unmarked car flipped over at 70th Street and South Stony Island Avenue, police said.

Two of the officers — McVey, wan 8-year veteran; and Sherrod, a seven-year officer — were taken to Northwestern, while McGee was taken to Stroger, all three initially in serious condition.

McVey might need surgery on his arm, which was found to be broken during follow-up testing, according to a statement from police.
