Car crashes into building near Michigan Avenue; 4 injured

CHICAGO — A car drove through Pioneer Court and crashed into a building near Michigan Avenue about 4 p.m. Friday.

The Chicago Fire Department said a woman was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital and three children were taken to Lurie Children's Hospital. All four are expected to be okay.

The car was parked in a cutaway where taxis pull in to pick up passengers in the 400 block of North Michigan Avenue. One of the children in the car shifted the car into drive — forcing the vehicle to jump the curb. It narrowly missed a glass sign before smashing into a building.

The car was towed fairly quickly.
