Driver fatally shot, 3 others injured in Back of the Yards crash

A woman was fatally shot and crashed her car, injuring three people Tuesday night in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

The 19-year-old woman was driving a Chevrolet Malibu around 11 p.m. when a silver SUV pulled up and someone inside started shooting in the 800 block of West Garfield Boulevard, according to police.

The woman was shot in the upper back and crashed her car into a Volkswagen Jetta in the 5400 block of South Halsted Street. She was transported to the University of Chicago Hospital where she was pronounced dead. Her identity has not yet been released by the Cook County medical examiner's office.

A 19-year-old passenger who was riding in her car suffered cuts to the face. She was taken to the same hospital in "serious but stable" condition, police said.

The driver and passenger of the Jetta, 43 and 40, suffered minor injuries in the crash and were taken to Stroger Hospital in good condition.

The SUV that the gunfire came from fled the scene northbound.

There is no one in custody as Area One detectives investigate.
