Four injured in Chicago car accident after vehicle runs into South Side building

Three people were critically injured and a fourth person hurt in a Chicago car accident last Friday night when a car crashed into a South Side building, the Sun-Times reported.

As we reported last summer on our Chicago Car Accident Lawyers blog, accidents involving vehicles striking buildings is not uncommon in the Chicago area, and frequently result in injuries to vehicle or building occupants.

In July, a vehicle crashed into a Curves fitness center in Lake Zurich and several restaurants were damaged in Chicago last year, including two incidents at Starbucks and two other accidents that struck Petterino’s restaurant in downtown Chicago.

Friday’s incident involved a three-vehicle accident at South Hoyne Avenue and West 63rd Street at about 7:30 p.m., according to Chicago police. One of the vehicles struck a building, causing unknown structural damage.

Two people were taken in critical condition to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County and two others were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital

All four victims were inside the car that apparently crashed into the building, according to police. Five ambulances responded to the scene.

It has not been reported if any Chicago injury lawyers are working on the case yet.
