One vehicle plowed into another car that was waiting for a stoplight to change on the far northwest side this morning, leaving one person dead and four others hospitalized, some of them in critical condition.
Police say a car containing two people was stopped on Hausman Road at the Loop 1604 interchange, waiting for the light to change about 2 this morning.
Investigators say a red car slammed into the stopped vehicle from behind. The driver of the first car was killed and the passenger was critically injured.
Three of the four people who were in the car that slammed into the stopped vehicle were also hospitalized.
Police will perform a blood alcohol test on the driver of the car that rear ended the stopped vehicle.
