9 Injured On Chicago’s Northwest Side During Multicar and Bus Accident

Late this morning, a bus and at least three cars were involved in an accident on the northwest side of Chicago.

While details are somewhat lacking, it appears as if the CTA bus (No. 54/Cicero) was struck from behind by at least two vehicles. The accident occured around 11 a.m. at Cicero and Diversey, in the Northwest Side’s Kelvyn Park neighborhood.

Ambulances took nine people, including a seriously injured child, from the accident. None of the injuries are expected to be life-threatening, according to police.

The cause of the accident, according to preliminary investigation, is that a teenage girl, distraught over a boy, stole her brother’s SUV and crashed it into at least 2 other cars and the bus, according to police.
