A Chicago pedestrian accident that occurred on Saturday in the 6200 block of South St. Lawrence Avenue has injured three children and one woman, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. An 11-year-old girl is in critical condition.
The Chicago car vs. pedestrian accident happened when a stolen 1999 Chrysler hit the pedestrians, then struck a parked car and a brick wall. After that, several people jumped out of the car and fled the scene of the accident. They left behind the car that has Indiana plates.
All four injured pedestrians were hospitalized. The children, including the 11-year-old that is in critical condition, were all taken to the University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital. The injured woman, age 35, was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center and is reportedly in stable condition.
The vehicle involved in the hit-and-run accident was stolen from the 5000 block of S. Cottage Grove Ave. Police are still searching for the driver and passengers involved in the accident. Anyone with information regarding this pedestrian accident should immediately call the Chicago Police Department at 312-745-4521.
It is not been reported if Chicago injury lawyers are involved in this case yet. However, due to the fact the Chrysler was stolen, the vehicle will be uninsured.
Hopefully the injured pedestrian victims and their families have their own auto insurance policies. If they do, they will be able to pursue uninsured motorist claims against their own auto insurance carriers.
