A Chicago taxi cab accident has sent three people to area hospitals this morning. A taxi cab apparently slammed into a bridge abutment by Union Station at 120 Riverside Plaza this morning during rush hour. In a strange twist, the cab was traveling backwards when it jumped the curb according to witness reports. The Chicago taxi cab accident has left two pedestrians in critical condition, another in serious condition. One victim refused treatment at the scene. Taxi cab accidents can be very risky to pedestrians as many cabs may not have sufficient insurance or licensing to operate safely.
