In Chicago, Illinois four people were injured on Sunday when a car drove into a Starbucks Coffee Shop, according to the Chicago Tribune and several other news sources. The car vs. pedestrian accident happened in the 6000 block of Lincoln Avenue on the far North Side.
Reportedly, the driver of a blue Lexus who was turning into Starbucks lost control, jumped a curb, hit a stop sign, hit a tree, and then smashed through a glass window hitting customers inside the coffee shop.
There was no evidence that the driver, a 56 year old Chicago woman, was intoxicated. The Chicago Police Department issued her a ticket for negligent driving.
The driver and her passenger, and one injured customer were taken to Swedish Covenant Hospital on the North Side. Another person injured in the coffee shop was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston.
