Six people were injured Friday night when a car jumped the curb and hit a table outside a Chicago restaurant†
Five of the victims have been taken to hospital, according to a tweet from the Chicago Fire Department media account. One person refused treatment.
The fire department said: the vehicle was stolen and the driver “fled” when the car jumped over the curb just before 10:30 p.m. Police could not confirm that information.
A police press release said the silver Lexus sedan attempted to pass a Toyota Prius that was traveling in the same direction when it pinched the front of the Prius.
The driver of the Lexus lost control and jumped over the curb, hitting several people dining on Uproar’s patio. Two of the injured are restaurant workers, Uproar said in a Facebook statement†
Two men, 26 and 32, and a woman, 26, were taken to St. Mary’s in good condition, according to police. Another 26-year-old woman and a 24-year-old woman each suffered a broken leg and were taken to Northwestern in fair condition.
The driver of the Lexus fled. No arrests have been made and the incident is still under investigation.
