1 injured in multi-vehicle rollover crash in Brighton Park


CHICAGO — A 63-year-old man was injured after a multi-vehicle crash that may have followed a possible road rage incident.

The accident happened around 6:15 a.m. Wednesday on Western Avenue and 42nd Street in the Brighton Park neighborhood.

Police said the 63-year-old was the driver of a black Chevy truck that rolled on-top of a Chrysler sedan in the collision.

The man was transported to Mt. Sinai Hospital and is said to be in good condition. Another person was reportedly transported to a hospital for evaluation.

Sources said a dark-colored Porsche SUV ran a stop sign and slammed into the black Chevy truck, which was traveling southbound on Western.

The Porsche had been reportedly stolen and whoever was behind the wheel jumped out and ran after the crash.

Vernon Price wound up underneath the wreckage in his Chrysler.

“The truck just came on top of me,” Price said. “Thank God I made it.”

Despite the pickup apparently rolling onto and over other vehicles, there were no other injuries.

A witness at the scene tells WGN the crash followed another traffic incident near 47th Street, involving one or two of the vehicles. Police have not confirmed that.
