Single-Car Evanston Crash Injures Three Men

There was a single-car crash in Evanston on January 21, 2017 after which the driver was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI.)  The driver and two other passengers were injured in the crash.

According to Evanston Police, the accident happened just after 3:30 a.m. in the 300 block of Sheridan Road.

The driver was identified only as a 28-year-old man from Chicago.

An excerpt from the Chicago Sun-Times article (with crash scene photo) of January 21, 2017, titled “Driver arrested after 3 injured in Evanston crash“:

The driver and two passengers — a 28-year-old man and a 29-year-old man — were taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, police said. The driver was treated for broken bones and was in surgery Saturday. The 29-year-old suffered a broken femur.

The 28-year-old passenger was the most seriously injured and suffered brain bleeding, police said. All three men live in Chicago.

As seen in the crash scene photo, the car seems to have had a frontal collision with a concrete support.

Additional details regarding this crash can be seen in various media sources, including the Chicago Sun-Times article mentioned above, as well as the January 21, 2017 Wilmette Patch article titled “Serious Crash Closes Sheridan Road in Evanston.”
