Chicago Car Accident Caused By Running Through Red Light

The Chicago Tribune is reporting on a car accident that has sent one man to the hospital in critical condition.

The 40 year old injured driver was in the Roseland neighborhood early this morning-around 3:45 am-when the crash occurred. He was driving near the intersection of Halsted and 115th Street when, for reasons that police are still investigating, the man failed to stop at a red light. His GMC minivan slammed into a Chevrolet Impala that was traveling through the intersection south on Halsted.

The collision caused the minivan to spin around and slam into a light pole in the corner of the intersection. The minivan driver was severely injured in the accident. He was listed in very critical condition after being rushed to a nearby hospital.

Police are still investigating the Chicago car accident and are unsure why the driver ran the red light. Fortunately, the Impala driver was not injured in the crash. In far too many accidents, the drivers and passengers who bore no fault in causing the crash are the ones who suffer severe injury and death.
