CWB Chicago: A Chicago police officer was injured five months ago when he accidentally rode his bike into this pothole near Boystown during a nighttime patrol.
Now, you might be thinking the city would expedite the repair of a pothole that caused one of its police officers to go flying from his bicycle.
And you’d be wrong.
As of Thursday morning – almost exactly five months after the officer’s injuries – the long, narrow, and deep hole remains in place. And it’s growing.
Oh, to be sure, the city did send someone out shortly after the officer crashed. They placed a traffic barrel and a bollard over the hole.
