Two men were seriously hurt Monday morning in a multi-vehicle car crash at Jackson Park, where one of the vehicles in the wreck was stolen from a carjacking on the Near North Side.

At 5:07 a.m., an armed carjacking by three males was reported in the 400 block of West Wisconsin Street in Old Town Triangle, according to Chicago police.

Police said the vehicle was later involved in a multi-vehicle crash at Cornell Drive and Hayes Drive, an intersection inside Jackson Park on the South Side.

Two men, 26 and 59 years old, were taken in serious-to-critical condition to University of Chicago Medical Center, according to the Chicago Fire Department.

A person arrested after the crash was released later without charging, police said.
