Two children were injured when their car crashed during a police chase on the South Side of Chicago, last night.
Police officers had received a drug tip and attempted to pull the Buick over around 11pm on Monday. The driver refused to stop and led officers on a six block chase as the occupants tossed drugs out of the vehicle windows. The female driver lost control of the vehicle as she was crossing the railroad tracks at South Ashland Avenue and 89th Street. The vehicle became airborne and crashed into a light pole.
The vehicle contained two children, one was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in serious-to-critical condition; the other to Corner’s Children Hospital at the University of Chicago and was also listed in serious-to-critical condition. Both boys were listed in good condition early this morning.
The female driver, 22, was unresponsive and had to be revived at the scene. The mother of the boys and her male passenger were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where he was also listed in critical condition.
Police spokeswoman, Officer Amina Greer, stated that a weapon and narcotics were recovered from the vehicle.
