CHICAGO — Two men shot Friday near Lake Shore Drive commandeered a woman's car to get themselves to the hospital, police said.

The duo demanded the 22-year-old woman get out of her car on a stretch of highway on the South Side about 1 p.m. Friday.

According to the Chicago Police Department, the men were driving near 47th Street and Cornell Drive — heading toward Lake Shore Drive — when a black car pulled up and someone inside opened fire.

The victims, both 23, attempted to drive themselves to Mercy Hospital but collided with a Mazda being driven by the woman. The victims then jumped into the woman's car and demanded she drive them to the hospital, police said.

The men soon told the woman she wasn't driving fast enough, and demanded she get out of the car. She did, and that's when the men stole her car.

They made it to Mercy and were later transferred to Stroger Hospital, where their conditions had stabilized. One man was shot in his leg and groin area. The other was shot in his chest and leg.

No one was in custody.
