A man was shot multiple times during an argument that followed a traffic crash Friday night on the Near West Side.

After the 23-year-old man’s car collided with a red minivan around 11:30 p.m. he followed the van to a stoplight in the 1200 block of West Roosevelt Road, where he and the other driver got out of their vehicles and began arguing, Chicago police said.

The driver of the van pulled out a handgun and opened fire, striking the 23-year-old in the chest, back of the neck and right calf, police said. The wounded man then drove himself to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, police said.

No arrests have been reported.
