A 19-year-old woman was taken in good condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police said. A spokesman for the fire department said she was pregnant. A 71-year-old woman was taken there as well in good condition with bruises.

A 33-year-old man was taken to Stroger Hospital in fair condition with a cracked rib, along with a 66-year-old man in good condition with bruises, police said.

Another adult was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious-to-critical condition, fire officials said.

Additionally, the 58-year-old driver was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center where her condition stabilized, along with another man whose age wasn’t available, police said.

Multiple traffic tickets are pending against the driver.
