Fatal crash in Chicago, 3-21-23

Excerpts from

An elderly woman died and at least six others, including two children, were wounded in a crash on Chicago’s Northwest Side Tuesday evening in the 3400 block of West Peterson that involved at least two vehicles — a KIA SUV driven by a 46-year-old man and a Saturn sedan driven by an 18-year-old man.

Police said the 46-year-old was traveling eastbound on Peterson with five passengers when the vehicle was struck by the 18-year-old as they entered the intersection.

Fire officials initially said a total of eight victims were taken to area hospitals, with seven of them in serious-to-critical condition, but police later said seven people were injured.

Among them was a 78-year-old woman, who was taken to St. Francis Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. She was identified as Zainab Suboh of Highland, Indiana.

The 46-year-old driver was taken to Lutheran General in fair condition, along with a 36-year-old woman. An 81-year-old passenger was also taken to St. Francis Hospital in critical condition. Two children, ages 3 and 7, were transported to Lurie Children’s Hospital in fair condition.

The 18-year-old driver of the Saturn sedan was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center in fair condition.

The Major Accidents unit is investigating the crash.
