According to Park Ridge Police, the accident happened at approximately 10:50 p.m. when a SUV “ran” a red light as it was heading eastbound on Devon Avenue. The car was said to be “speeding” and some believe that it may have been involved in “street racing” a second vehicle. At that time, the SUV struck an Audi traveling northbound on Cumberland.
The driver of the SUV, identified as a 20-year-old man, was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital for treatment of his accident injuries. Two passengers in the SUV – an 18-year-old woman and 20-year-old man – were ejected during the accident and were also taken to Lutheran General.
The driver of the Audi, a 24-year-old woman, was taken to Resurrection Medical Center for treatment of her accident injuries, which were considered to be non-life-threatening in nature.
An excerpt from the June 4, 2015 Chicago Tribune article (with video) titled “Police: 4 hurt when SUV ran red light, hit car in Park Ridge“:
There were some reports the SUV may have been racing with another vehicle shortly before the crash, but police could not confirm that as of Thursday morning. Jogmen said there was no independent evidence available early Thursday to say the SUV’s driver was racing.
The accident remains under investigation.
