A wrong-way driver took off after causing a crash Sunday morning that left four people injured in Fuller Park on the South Side.

Just before 5 a.m., a 23-year-old man was driving a Nissan Altima north on Wentworth Avenue when he attempted to turn left turn onto 47th Street and was struck by a Chevrolet Impala, according to Chicago police. 

The Impala’s male driver had been traveling east on 47th, which is a one-way street going westbound in that stretch, police said. After the crash, he got out of his car and ran off.

The driver of the Altima and a 21-year-old woman who was riding with him were taken to Stroger Hospital, where their conditions were stabilized, police said. Two women from the Altima, ages 35 and 41, were also stabilized at the University of Chicago Medical Center.
