Pedestrian and Flower Shop Hit by Driver
The Albany Park neighborhood in Chicago was the scene of an accident on the morning of Monday, December 12 in which a car struck a pedestrian after hitting several parked cars. The vehicle then smashed into a flower shop.
The accident occurred around 7:15 in the morning as a pedestrian was waiting for the #82 Kimball/Homan bus at Irving Park Road. A silver Buick sedan was seen going faster than normal in a northerly direction on Kimball. The driver veered right and hit some parked cars before hitting the pedestrian. It then hit a black SUV and both vehicles crashed into Bonnie Flower Shop, going through the store front window.
The pedestrian was taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital and was reported to be in critical condition. The driver was taken to a different hospital but that person’s condition is unknown at this time.
