Two people were critically hurt in a four-vehicle traffic crash on the Far South Side Sunday morning.

The crash happened at 106th Street and Ewing Avenue about 7:30 a.m., according to Fire Media Affairs.

Two people, whose ages and genders were not immediately available, were taken in serious to critical condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, according to Fire Media.

Witnesses told police that an Oldsmobile was going too fast on Ewing, ran a red light and smashed into a Dodge Durango, the Tribune reported.

Two other cars were also hit in the crash.  The driver of the Oldsmobile and the Durango were the ones taken to the hospital, according to the paper.

As a result of the street blockage and to allow police to conduct their investigation, the CTA temporarily rerouted the No. 30 South Chicago buses. They were back to their normal routes by about 10:25 a.m., according to the CTA.

Police were investigating the crash and no citations or charges had been issued as of about 10:30 a.m.
