A car crash Friday morning critically injured two children and a woman in the South Side Bronzeville neighborhood.

The 23-year-old woman was driving a 2017 Hyundai Elantra east about 6:14 a.m. on 49th Street while a 23-year-old man was driving a 2016 Dodge Charger north on King Drive, according to Chicago Police. One of the vehicles ran a red light and they collided in the intersection. It was not immediately clear which vehicle ran the light.

Two back-seat passengers in the Hyundai, a 2-year-old girl and an 8-year-old boy, were taken to Comer Children’s Hospital in critical condition, police said. The woman was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center in serious condition, while the driver of the Dodge refused medical treatment.

The Chicago Fire Department initially reported that the girl was 3 years old and the boy was 6.
