Plenty of bike parking for Mumford & Sons concert at Montrose Beach

(CHICAGO) If you’re heading to the sold-out Mumford & Sons concert Wednesday at Montrose Beach, leave your car — and your selfie sticks — at home, organizers say.

Gates open at 3 p.m. for the concert at Cricket Hill inside the lakefront park on the North Side. The British rock band is touring after the release of its third album, “Wilder Mind,” and is joined by opening acts The Maccabees and Son Little.

No parking will be provided for the event, according concert organizer JAM Productions. Concertgoers are strongly encouraged to use public transportation, bike or take a Divvy bike instead of driving.

JAM Productions is providing a free bike valet for the first 4,000 bicycles on site, the concert’s website said. Cyclists can drop off their bikes and gear at the east entrance along Montrose and pick them up after the event.

Divvy representatives will also be at the east entrance to valet bikes before the event and provide additional bikes after the show, the website said.

The CTA will provide extra bus service along the No. 78 Montrose, No. 81 Lawrence and No. 146 Inner Drive/Michigan Express routes from 4 p.m. until one hour after the concert ends, the transit agency said.

The Red Line will also have extra train service for concertgoers, the CTA said. The Wilson station is about two blocks west of the lakefront park.

Anyone walking to or from concert should stay clear of Lake Shore Drive and use the pedestrian underpasses below it at Montrose, Wilson and Lawrence.

Montrose, Wilson and Lawrence streets will also be closed to traffic east of Lake Shore Drive because of the concert.

The show will go on rain or shine. The first act starts about 6 p.m. and the show should end by 10 p.m. Attendees must bring printed copies of their tickets, as tickets on cellphone screens will not be accepted, the concert’s website said.

Small backpacks, water bottles, blankets, strollers and nonprofessional cameras are allowed. Lawn chars, umbrellas, selfie sticks, coolers and other large items are prohibited.

Outside food and drinks will not be permitted, but there will be vendors selling food, beer, wine and cocktails inside the park.

Four injured in South Loop crash, good Samaritans pull driver from burning vehicle

(CHICAGO) Good Samaritans pulled a driver from a burning car Wednesday night after a two-vehicle crash injured three others in the South Loop.

About 10:40 p.m., a Buick LaCrosse and Jeep Cherokee were both traveling southbound on South Columbus Drive near East Roosevelt Road, when the Buick accelerated and attempted to pass the Jeep on the right, police said.

The Buick then struck a curb, struck the Jeep, and crashed into a concrete planter, causing it to flip over and ignite, police said.

Citizens pulled the driver, a 33-year-old man, from the Buick, police said. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and released.

The man in the passenger seat of the Buick was taken to Stroger Hospital, while the driver of the Jeep was taken to Mercy Hospital and Medical Center and the woman in the Jeep’s passenger seat was taken to Northwestern, police said. As of Thursday morning, they had all been treated and released.

The man driving the Buick was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, failure to stay in his lane and no insurance, police said.

“My buddy and I are both military guys so we’ve had a little bit of training, so we decided, ‘Hey, we should check this guy out,’” Tony Genovese, who was one of two good Samaritans to pull the driver out of the Buick, told reporters at the scene.

Genovese said he and his friend, who are both National Guardsmen, were westbound on Roosevelt when they saw the crash.

“We tried to talk to [the driver], we saw his car started lighting on fire, so we basically pulled him out of the car,” Genovese said.

Another person injured in the crash was taken in serious-to-critical condition to Stroger Hospital, Roccasalva said. A third person was taken in fair-to-serious condition to Mercy Hospital.

Man seriously injured while trying to drive car off top of parking garage

(CHICAGO) A car flipped over onto the edge of a North Side parking garage when a 50-year-old man tried to drive off it early Tuesday in Rogers Park, leaving him seriously injured.

About 5 a.m., the Nissan hit a retaining wall on the fourth level of the garage in the 7400 block of North Rogers when the driver tried to take the vehicle over the edge, police said. The car instead flipped over onto its roof.

The man had to be extricated, and he was taken to Presence Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston in serious-to-critical condition, fire officials said.
