Chicago (CBS) A 14-year-old girl died Friday night after a sport utility vehicle crashed into a bus station in Auburn Gresham, and three adults were taken to hospital.
As reported by CBS 2’s Marybel González, police said a 33-year-old man was driving a gold Mercedes-Benz west on 79th Street when he ran a red light on Racine Avenue.
The Mercedes crashed into a black Jeep heading south on Racine Avenue, which flew over a curb and hit a woman and a 14-year-old girl standing at a Chicago Transit Authority bus stop.
“He was able to drive the jeep into a crowd of pedestrians waiting on the bus. I don’t know how many, but I do know that a little girl was stuck between the brakes. – Do you understand what I’m saying?” Witness Vincent Holland said. “There was nothing we could do about it.”
The girl was taken to the University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. A woman at the bus stop, whose age is unknown, was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in critical condition.
The 33-year-old Mercedes driver was taken to hospital with serious injuries, while the Jeep driver, a 42-year-old man, was taken to St. Bernard Hospital with minor injuries.
As of 10:00 pm, the two crashed vehicles remained at the scene, with vehicle parts and debris littering the street.
The Police Accident Investigation Division is investigating.
