Chicago auto accident – vehicle crashes into downtown Dunkin’ Donuts

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that two motorists were hurt in a Chicago car crash early Tuesday morning, with one of the cars striking a Dunkin’ Donuts in the Loop.

This is the second time in a matter of days that a driver has crashed into a Chicago restaurant. As our Illinois auto accident lawyers reported recently, a motorist crashed into Manny’s Deli this past Saturday, leaving a large hole in a restaurant wall.

This crash involved a Toyota SUV and a taxicab. The cause of the accident was not reported.

Police stated that the two drivers involved in accident were the only people injured, according to investigating police officers. No restaurant patrons or pedestrians were injured. Both motorists were taken by ambulance to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, one in critical condition and the other in fair to serious condition.

The manager of the Dunkin’ Donuts, located at 211 W. Adams St., said it sounded like a bomb went off when the car hit the restaurant. The vehicle sent glass and debris behind the counter, causing the restaurant to have to dispose of that morning’s doughnuts.

The accident is being investigated by the Chicago Police Department.
