Three pedestrians were injured when they were hit by a speeding car Friday afternoon in the West Loop. CBS 2 Chicago’s Jermont Terry reports.
Police and firefighter/paramedics from Chicago responded about 4:15 p.m. Friday February 21, 2020 to a report of a vehicle crash with multiple pedestrians injured.
An EMS Plan 1 was activated by 4:32 p.m. Battalion Chief 3 was in command at 4:40 p.m. and secured the EMS Plan1 at 4:49 p.m.
Police said the driver of a black Hyundai Santa Fe was traveling southbound on Halsted Street, and was passing through the intersection with Randolph Street, when he lost control and crossed into oncoming traffic, striking three pedestrians who were crossing the street. The driver of the Hyundai Santa Fe possibly ran a red light.
The Hyundai Santa Fe then crashed into a parked car on northbound on Halstead Street. The Hyundai Santa Fe came to rest between the parked car — a red Ford Mustang — and the Haymarket Pub & Brewery building on the southeast corner of Halsted Street and Randolph Street.
