Police: 1 Dead, 3 Injured When Vehicle Crashes Into Bus Shelter

A 67-year-old woman was killed and three other people were injured when a vehicle crashed into a car before plowing into a CTA bus shelter Tuesday evening in the Calumet Heights neighborhood on the South Side, police said.

A BMW was northbound on Stony Island near 94th Street when it collided with a Chevrolet sedan as the driver was making a left turn, according to Chicago Police. The BMW’s male driver then lost control of the vehicle and went onto the sidewalk before crashing into the bus shelter.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office didn’t immediately confirm the death.

Three females took themselves to Trinity Hospital after suffering minor injuries, police said.

There were no charges or citations pending as of early Wednesday, police said. The CPD’s Major Accident Investigation Unit was investigating the crash.

The CTA didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
