2 Dead, 4 Hurt in Humboldt Park Crash



    A man and a woman have died after a crash that left four others critically injured in the West Side's Humboldt Park neighborhood Sunday morning.

    The man was pronounced dead at 6:17 a.m. while the woman was pronounced dead at 6:08 a.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office.  Their names were not being released immediately.

    The man and woman, both 57 years old, were pronounced at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

    The crash happened at 5:18 a.m., when one car hit a wall or a structure in the 4300 block of West Diversey Avenue, according to police News Affairs Officer Darryl Baety.

    That car collided with another car, and several people were hurt, Baety said. 

    Responders initially transported six people in critical condition, Rosado said -- two to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, two to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, one to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, and one to Our Lady of the Resurrection Medical Center, said Fire Media Affairs Spokesman Richard Rosado.

    Ages and genders of the injured were not immediately available.
