Chicago CTA bus crash – 4 injured downtown

A CTA bus accident early Friday morning has resulted in four people being hospitalized, according to Fox news in Chicago. The collision involved a car and bus at the intersection of Washington Street and Clark Street in the Loop.

Reportedly a number 20 Madison bus was headed eastbound around 3:15 AM when a car, also traveling eastbound, cut in front of the bus causing a collision.

Four CTA passengers were taken by ambulance to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. Three of those hurt were taken to Mercy Hospital, and one was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, according to the Chicago Tribune.

A police spokesperson stated that tickets are expected to be issued to the driver of the car that supposedly caused the accident.

It has not been reported if any Chicago bus accident attorneys are involved in the case.

Accidents involving CTA buses can be extremely dangerous for passengers on board. Riders are not wearing seatbelts and they are often forced to stand due to overcrowding.
