A rollover car accident on the Kennedy Expressway in Chicago Sunday morning injured 5 people.
The accident happened as a 41-year-old woman was driving a SUV in the outbound lanes near Armitage Avenue Sunday. At approximately 9:25 a.m., she apparently tried to avoid a vehicle that had pulled in front of her car. In doing so, she lost control of the SUV, and the SUV rolled over several times. The woman driver and her four children, aged 11-14, were seriously injured during the accident.
The female driver, a resident of Chicago, is said to be the most seriously injured of the 5 people in the SUV, according to the Illinois State Police. She was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, and was said to be in serious to critical condition.
According to Chicago Fire Department officials, three children were taken to Children’s Memorial Hospital; the fourth child was taken Stroger Hospital.
Everyone in the SUV, which was a 1996 Chevrolet Blazer, had their seatbelts on at the time of the accident.
