An excerpt from the Chicago Sun-Times article (with crash scene photo) of January 21, 2017, titled “Driver arrested after 3 injured in Evanston crash“:

The driver and two passengers — a 28-year-old man and a 29-year-old man — were taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, police said. The driver was treated for broken bones and was in surgery Saturday. The 29-year-old suffered a broken femur.

The 28-year-old passenger was the most seriously injured and suffered brain bleeding, police said. All three men live in Chicago.
