CHICAGO - Two people are in custody after a crash on the city's West Side that caused a light pole to fall on a CTA bus.

Police say the two people were in a car traveling northbound on Cicero Avenue on Saturday night around 7:45 p.m. They made an illegal move to get around slower traffic while entering the intersection at Madison Avenue.

When they entered the intersection, they hit another car that was turning.

Three women who were inside the car that was hit were taken to the hospital and are expected to be okay.

No one on the bus was injured.
