Chicago, IL—Three people were injured after a pickup truck crashed Tuesday, December 29, 2009 on the Dan Ryan Expressway, according to information provided by the Chicago Sun-Times. It was allegedly reported that a semi-truck that left the scene may have played a role in the wreck.
The incident occurred at approximately 1:50 p.m., when a northbound pickup truck lost control of his vehicle, which sent him crashing into a divider that was approximately 30 inches tall and 12 feet long. The pickup truck reportedly came to a rest on its side, above the median. A semi-truck that left the scene and never made physical contact with any of the vehicles, was reportedly considered to be the cause of the crash, though there were no witnesses on site. Another vehicle carrying three people was also involved in the crash; its occupants refused to be transported by EMS personnel.
Emergency medical services (EMS) teams issued an EMS Plan I response to take a man, a woman, and their child to hospitals for the treatment of the injuries they acquired in the horrifying crash. The couple was transported to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital, and the 15-year-old child was taken to University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital. Paramedics transported three crash victims to medical centers after they sustained serious-to-critical injuries. Illinois State Police officials are reportedly investigating the incident.
