Per ABC 7 Chicago:
The pileup occurred around 5 a.m. at North Avenue, and involved three semis.
Fourteen people were transported to hospitals, and 45 others were evaluated at the scene, Chicago fire officials said. Crews made sure victims kept their distance, taking into consideration COVID-19 guidance.
“Social distancing, obviously is our main concern, but we have another job to do as well as far as far as fires, accidents and other things we respond to every day,” said John Giordano, a CFD deputy district chief. “Aside from the pandemic that’s going on, we’re still dealing with everyday incidents. This is one of them.”
Stay safe out there everyone.
