A Chicago car accident early this morning resulted in two deaths and four receiving serious personal injuries. Early this morning at 5:15 a.m., two vehicles crashed into a PLS Check Cashiers store in a Chicago neighborhood on the Northwest side of the city. The two who were killed in the Chicago car accident were two individuals in their fifties who were on a cleaning crew that had been working downtown and were heading back to their homes. Both were pronounced dead at a Chicago hospital shortly after the Illinois car crash.
Police reported that two cars were involved: a beige Hyundai and a black Honda. The Honda vehicle hit a street light and both cars then hit the PLS Check Cashiers store. Emergency personnel responded shortly thereafter and everyone was listed as being seriously to critically injured. Six ambulances responded to the accident scene. A nearby neighbor, who lives only one block away from the accident site, was awakened by the sound shortly after 5:00 a.m. this morning. He recalled that three young people were in the Honda and three older people were in the Hyundai; he stated that one was really seriously hurt and the other person was not really moving at all. He stated that emergency personnel had to use the jaws of life to remove a person from the car and CPR was being performed on another victim that he observed. The neighbor stated that the other three victims were sitting next to the car trying to figure out what happened with the Chicago car accident. All six individuals were treated at local hospitals.
