A 5-month-old infant and his mother are hospitalized after a van crashed into a telephone pole.
It happened just after 1:30 a.m. Tuesday as the van was heading north on Pulaksi, ejecting the baby from the vehicle.
When authorities arrived on the scene, unopened beer cans were found in the passengers seat.
They're investigating how the crash happened and if the child seat in the car was properly installed.
The baby was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition.
The mother remains in stable condition.
