The driver of the Acura then made a U-turn in the middle of Clybourn Avenue and hit the women again, Quaid said.
A 24-year-old woman sustained life-threatening injuries to her abdomen, back and buttocks, and her hip was injured, Quaid said. She was taken to Northwestern Hospital in critical condition.
A 34-year-old woman's head was injured and she was taken to Northwestern Hospital in serious condition, Quaid said.
