Chicago, Illinois Car Accident: Seven Injured as Taxi Crashes into 7-Eleven in the Loop

The 7-Eleven located at 33 E. Adams St. in the Loop became the scene of a Chicago car accident site on Tuesday night when a taxi drove into a store. The cab had just collided with another vehicle.

7 people were injured. Four of them had to be hospitalized. The Ford Crown Victoria cab is owned by Flash Cab.

According to police, at around 10:35, a Toyota Corolla on Wabash Street ran a red light at an intersection. The cab then collided into the driver’s side of the Corolla before going over the curb, striking a newsstand, and then driving into the 7-Eleven’s entrance.

While no one inside the convenience store got hurt, the taxi cab driver and the Corolla’s driver were taken to local hospitals and admitted in serious condition. Two others were taken to the hospital, including one man who may have been a pedestrian hit by flying debris from the crash. Three others who were injured during the Chicago traffic crash refused medical attention at the accident site.

The Corolla’s driver received citations for driving without insurance and ignoring a traffic signal. More citations may be pending against the Corolla driver and the taxi driver. Police are continuing to investigate the cause of the Chicago, Illinois auto accident.
