A 23-year-old woman, who was sitting in the front passenger seat of the Civic, had to be cut from the car. She was taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.
The driver of the Civic, an 18-year-old man and a 5-year-old boy who was in the back seat, were taken in serious-to-critical condition to Stroger Hospital.
The crash is under investigation.
