SUV, Pickup Truck Crash At Michigan And Wacker

CHICAGO (CBS) — A sport-utility vehicle and a pickup truck crashed in the heart of downtown Chicago Tuesday morning.

The crash happened sometime before 6 a.m. at Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive.

CBS 2’s Kris Habermehl reported an eastbound SUV slammed into a quad-cab pickup truck, spinning the pickup around in the intersection.

The SUV driver was shaken up more than anything else, but the front of the vehicle was demolished.

The SUV was being towed away as of around 6:10 a.m. City traffic management crews were able to clear the scene easily.

  • Hate SUV Drivers!!!

    SLOW THE “F” DOWN, put your starbucks down, hang up your cell-bb, put your make up on at work and PAY ATTENTION TO THE ROAD !!!

  • Austin

    Last Wednesday night around 8pm, we saw a lady on the Dan Ryan attempting to text with her right hand, smoke a cigarette with her left, steer with her knee, and yell at her kids, all at the same time.

    Does nobody ever actually stop to consider how insanely reckless their behavior is? Or how the growing set of peripheral activities they never stop to think about virtually guarantees somebody’s death in the long term?


      And,she was probably attempting to put her shoes on also. A way too vast portion of our citizens never stop to consider anything,reckless or otherwise. They would never understand the word peripheral,and could care less about the innocent folks they may kill. They are just doing their thing cause they deserve too. Austin you really need to stay off the “Dangerous Dan” at 8pm,it’s not healthy.
