    A D.C. police officer was seriously injured after he was dragged by a vehicle in Northeast Washington. 

    The officer was helping with an investigation on the 4700 block of Brooks Street NE Thursday night, police say. When he tried to apprehend a suspect in a vehicle, the suspect accelerated, dragging the officer alongside the vehicle. 

    The officer was able to free himself as the vehicle left the scene. 

    The officer was taken to the hospital with severe but non-life-threatening injuries. 

    Police say the vehicle has been recovered, but the suspect has not been arrested. 

    Anyone with information that can help police is asked to call 202-727-9099.
