CHICAGO — A Washington Park woman is dead after an early-morning car wreck in Woodlawn, police said.
Tabria Jarmon, of the 5600 block of South Prairie Avenue, was killed when the car she was traveling in was struck and barreled into a utility pole at 2:26 a.m., authorities said.
Jarmon was a passenger in an Infiniti sedan traveling westbound on East 63rd Street, said Officer Daniel O’Brien, a police spokesman. The car drove through a red light, and was hit by a Nissan sedan traveling southbound on Woodlawn Avenue, O’Brien said.
The collision caused the Infiniti to spin out and hit a utility pole.
Jarmon was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 3:37 a.m., the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said.
Two other passengers of the car were injured. The driver, a 20-year-old man, was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in stable condition. Another passenger, a 22-year-old man, was taken to University of Chicago Hospitals in stable condition. A 19-year-old woman, also a passenger, refused medical attention, O’Brien said.
The occupants of the Nissan, both, 26, declined medical attention. Both drivers were issued tickets for not having insurance, O’Brien said.
The Major Accidents Unit is investigating the crash.
