CHICAGO — A wrong-way crash on the Chicago Skyway left four people hurt Thursday morning, authorities said.
A 25-year-old man driving a Honda northbound in the southbound lanes struck a pickup truck, which then veered out of control and hit a median about 5:04 a.m., said Officer John Mirabelli, a Chicago Police Department spokesman.
The collision happened on the Skyway near 85th Street in Avalon Park, Mirabelli said.
The 56-year-old man driving the pickup truck sustained leg injuries and was treated at South Shore Hospital, Mirabelli said.
It was initially reported that a woman was unresponsive after the crash. Later, police said a 20-year-old woman riding in the Honda was treated at Trinity Hospital and released. Another passenger in the Honda, a 24-year-old man, was treated at South Shore Hospital and released.
The driver of the Honda faces various charges, including driving in the wrong direction, Mirabelli said. Mirabelli said the driver was listed in "stable" condition with a broken arm at Advocate Christ Medical Center.
