CHICAGO - A high-speed crash Monday night in Chicago’s Washington Park neighborhood left two people dead and two others in injured.
The accident took place near the intersection of Morgan Drive and Rainey Drive. Chicago firefighters could be seen trying to pry open the doors of a vehicle to presumptively rescue people inside.

Fire officials on scene said one person was ejected from the vehicle on impact, while three others had to be pulled from the vehicle. Two people — a 35-year-old man and 23-year-old woman — were killed in the crash, police said.
There are conflicting reports on the conditions of the two surviving men — one 21-years-old while the other is 19-years-old. Fire officials on scene said they were in serious condition, while police said fair condition. Both were transported to area hospitals.
