Six people were injured Sunday in a four vehicle crash in Burnside on the South Side.

About 5:55 p.m., a GMC truck was driving south on Cottage Grove Avenue when it rear-ended a Dodge Caravan and a Dodge Journey in the 9100 block of South Cottage Grove Avenue, Chicago police said. The force from the crash caused the Dodge Caravan to lose control to crash into a Nissan Pathfinder traveling north on Cottage Gove Avenue.

A 25-year-old woman was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, police said. A 9-year-old girl, two 2-year-old boys and a 5-year-old boy were taken to Comer Children’s Hospital, police said. They have all had their conditions stabilized.

The driver of the GMC is in police custody.
