A man crashed a vehicle into another vehicle — seriously injuring an infant and a child — while driving himself to the hospital after getting shot Sunday in the Far South Side Fernwood neighborhood.

The 30-year-old was shot in the abdomen about 12:05 p.m. while driving in the 10100 block of South State, according to Chicago Police. As he was driving himself to the hospital, he crashed into another vehicle carrying four people.

The man was taken in serious condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, as were a 1-month-old boy and 24-year-old woman in the other car, according to the Chicago Fire Department. A 6-year-old girl and 45-year-old woman were taken to Roseland Community Hospital in fair-to-serious condition.
