Police investigate car crash that injured nine

Illinois State Police are investigating a three-car accident that injured nine people on I-94. The driver of the car that caused the accident is still being searched for by police officials.

The accident occurred around 10 p.m., when a car struck another while heading north down the roadway. The vehicle that was hit then struck another vehicle and swerved into a ditch. The first vehicle fled the scene before anyone could get a good look at it.

Four people, who were riding in the second vehicle, were transported to the hospital where they were treated and released. One person was in serious condition when taken to the hospital and two more were in fair condition.

Car accidents can unexpectedly and can cause serious injury to the people involved. Our thoughts are with the friends and family of the victim.
