CHICAGO — Two 17-year-old girls were injured, one seriously, when they were purposefully struck by a car during a gang-related fight in Logan Square early Saturday, police said.
Two cars — a Honda Accord and a grey Toyota sedan — were chasing one another through the neighborhood as passengers flashed gang signs just before 2 a.m. Saturday, according to police.
The Honda stopped in the 2600 block of North Troy Street about 1:45 a.m. and two 17-year-old passengers got out of the car, police said. At that point, the driver of the Toyota reversed the vehicle and rammed into the Accord, striking the two girls in the process.
One of the teens was pinned under a car and eventually taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where her condition had stabilized by Saturday morning, police said.
The other teen sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said both victims are documented gang members, and the incident was gang-related.
No one was in custody.
