(CHICAGO) Two people were reportedly killed and two others critically injured in a traffic crash in the Far South Side Roseland neighborhood Saturday morning.
The crash involved four vehicles and occurred about 8:30 a.m. in a residential area, at 102nd and State streets, according to police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli. Police said two people were reportedly killed in the crash, and two others were in critical condition.
One person was dead on the scene, according to Fire Media Affairs. Two others, in serious to critical condition, were taken to Advocate Christ Medical center in Oak Lawn, while one person was taken, also in serious to critical condition, to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County.
A spokeswoman for the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said that the office was notified of at least one fatality from the crash but she would not say exactly how many people were dead, as of about 10:30 a.m.
Following the crash, one sedan was in the middle of the intersection with extensive front end damage, Mirabelli said. Another sedan also had extensive damage and was wrapped around a utility pole, he said. A small compact vehicle rested along the curb, had extensive damage, and an SUV that was involved in the crash had flipped over and was missing a substantial part of its front end.
Investigators from the police Major Accident Investigation Unit were at the scene.
