Taxicab driver Brian Duako was ticketed for negligent driving after he suddenly sped backward through a crowded crosswalk outside Union Station in Chicago, Illinois at about 8 a.m. yesterday, injuring two pedestrians and himself. The incident raised concerns about the hazards associated with the morning commute and the potential for serious accidents involving busses, cars, and pedestrians. “This intersection is very busy,” Chicago Fire Department Chief Joseph Roccasalva said at the scene of the accident. “It’s lucky that more people weren’t hurt.” One of the injured pedestrians, Sheri Evans, was taken to the Northwestern Memorial Hospital emergency room. Duako was also sent to Northwestern Hospital with an ankle injury.
