    Six people were injured, one critically, when a CTA bus and an SUV collided in a terrifying crash caught on surveillance video on Chicago's South Side early Wednesday.

    The crash occurred around 12:24 a.m. in the 7400 block of South Halsted Street in the city's Englewood neighborhood, according to police.

    Authorities said a man was driving northbound on Halsted in a white Chevy Suburban when he attempted to turn left and was struck by the CTA bus in the intersection.

    The crash caused the bus to veer into the sidewalk, striking a tree, fire hydrant and CTA bus shelter, officials said.

    Five passengers on the bus - four men and one woman - were taken to St. Bernard Hospital and Little Company of Mary Hospital where they were treated and released, according to police and fire officials. Further details, including their ages and the nature of their injuries, were not immediately available.

    The driver of the Suburban was taken Advocate Christ Medical Center in critical but stable condition, authorities said. He was cited for failure to yield and driving without a license or insurance, according to police.
