A pair of accidents overnight hurt 2 people.

The first crash took place around 11 p.m. Saturday near Lincoln and Edgemoor in east Wichita.

One car was heading east on Lincoln when they yielded for a Wichita Police vehicle which had its lights on and was involved in a police chase. A second police vehicle also involved in the chase attempted to avoid but struck the vehicle that yielded, injuring the passenger.  That person was taken to a local hospital for their injuries.  

The second crash occurred near Maple and Ridge Road, in west Wichita around 2 a.m. Sunday.  A car ran into a tree and the driver was trapped and seriously hurt.

Both cases remain under investigation.
