Tense moments on a rural highway in Savanna, Illinois Wednesday morning after an officer-involved shooting. The officer and two people ended up in the hospital. 

It happened just after 4 a.m. Wednesday morning, October 24, 2012. A Savanna Police officer tried to pull over an SUV with Kansas license plates for speeding on Route 84 just three miles south of Savanna. 

He was able to stop it, but shots were fired as one of the drivers tried to get away, and it didn't end there.  

Police were at the scene of the traffic stop all morning for eight hours processing evidence. They tell TV6 an officer was trying to pull over a man, woman, and baby in an SUV. The officer was able to get the man in custody, but then the woman took the wheel and ended up hitting the man. 

The officer fired at the car with the baby still inside, hitting the car and the driver. She took off, and ended up crashing her car into a house on the 10000 block of Airport Road just a few miles away from the scene, where the homeowner found the child in the car and called police.  

She was treated at a local hospital and is now in jail. The baby was also checked out at the hospital and is reportedly in good condition. Police are not releasing the infant's name or age, but say the child is in the custody of DHS.

TV6 did talk to the homeowner there; he was shaken up by the experience. He tells us he was about to go to bed when he heard a loud boom, his entire house shaking. 

That's when he ran out to find the woman in the car, the front of it smashed right in the side of his house. He tells TV6 there's damage to the frame of his home, a hole through the wall, the dry wall is crumbling, and his air conditioning unit exploded after the car hit it, but he credits the A/C unit with saving his house and his life. 

Meanwhile authorities are still trying to piece together what happened.  

Charges are pending for both people involved, and authorities are not releasing their identities as of yet. But the officer involved is OK, at home recovering with his family. The other man was taken to a Rockford hospital with serious injuries, but his condition is still unknown.

State police are investigating; they're interviewing witnesses, reviewing dash cam video, and processing the SUV at an impound lot. 

Savanna police tell us the officer involved will be placed on administrative leave until the investigation is over.
