A 2-year-old girl was among two people injured in a crash early Sunday on the South Side.

About 2:50 a.m., a 2002 Ford Mustang driving north in the 3900 block of South LaSalle rear-ended a semi truck that was stopped at a red light, according to Chicago Police.

The car was pinned under the semi up to the windshield, the Chicago Fire Department said.

The girl, a passenger in the Mustang, was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital, while the 26-year-old man driving the car was taken to Stroger Hospital. Fire officials said they were both in serious-to-critical condition, but police said their injuries were not thought to be life-threatening. The driver of the semi truck was not injured.

The Mustang’s driver was cited for failure to reduce speed, driving on a suspended license and no proof of insurance, police said.
