The Charger hit a red Nissan which then hit a Ford Expedition. The Nissan was occupied by a rideshare driver and his passenger. 

The driver of the Charger, a 44-year-old man, and the passenger in the Nissan, a 31-year-old man, were both taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition. 


Four other men in the Charger were transported to Mt. Sinai Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

No one in the Ford Expedition was injured. 

The crash remains under investigation.
