Three people were injured after being hit by a car Friday on the Near West Side.

A black Hyundai Santa Fe was southbound about 4:30 p.m. in the 100 block of North Halsted Street and attempted to make a green light, Chicago police said.

The driver lost control, swerved into oncoming traffic and hit three people at the intersection before crashing into a parked car, police said.

A 45-year-old man suffered head injuries and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition, while another man, 36, was taken to the same hospital with “minor” injuries, police said.

A third man, 45, also suffered “minor” injuries and was taken to Stroger Hospital, police said. The driver, a 47-year-old man, was also taken to Stroger. Both were in good condition.

Police said it does not seem like the driver was impaired and citations were pending.

The cars came to a stop just outside of Haymarket Pub & Brewery, with the Santa Fe partially atop a sidewalk.

Jim Dore was in the restaurant when the crash happened, and said everyone inside came out to help those involved.

“It was good to see,” he said.
