14 People Injured In Chicago Van Accident
14 people were injured in a van accident that occurred Saturday night on on the Kennedy Expressway. The van, from Holy Temple Firstborn Missionary Baptist Church of Milwaukee, was carrying 20 passengers when a second van attempted to make a lane change and struck the church van. The church van suffered major rear end damage, spun out of control and struck a Mini Cooper and Toyota Camry. The second van that caused the accident fled the scene.
12 ambulances arrived at the scene of the van accident to transport 14 of the church van passengers to local hospitals, including Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and the University of Illinois at Chicago Medical Center. Two of the adult van accident victims were reportedly in serious-to-critical condition and a child passenger was reported to be in fair-serious condition.
