Chicago Loop Car Accident Injures Seven and Damages 7-11 Store

A two vehicle car accident left seven injured last Tuesday including several pedestrians. According to reports, the downtown Chicago car crash occurred at the intersection of Wabash and Adams when a southbound Toyota Corolla drove through a red light in front of a westbound taxi cab. The cab was unable to avoid a collision and hit the side of the Corolla which was sent flying through a newsstand outside a 7-11 convenience store. The taxi cab itself careened into the front entrance of the store knocking over a coffee maker. Thankfully, no patrons of the convenience store were injured as a result of the car accident.

The downtown Chicago car crash left seven people injured. The driver of the Corolla was taken to John H. Stroger Hospital along with two passengers in that vehicle. The passengers were listed in fair condition while the driver’s condition was listed as serious. Meanwhile, the driver of the taxicab was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was reportedly listed in serious condition. An official from the City of Chicago building department determined that the building remained structurally sound despite the damage. The driver of the Toyota Corolla received traffic citations for lack of insurance and failure to stop at a red traffic signal.
