UPDATED 04/03/12 9:49 a.m.

CHICAGO (CBS) — A high-speed chase with Chicago Police ended Tuesday morning with four people hospitalized, including children.

As CBS 2’s Susanna Song reports, police say people in the car were throwing drugs out the window during their pursuit.

As of 5 a.m. Tuesday, a 22-year-old woman was in critical condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. She was initially unresponsive and police thought she was dead, but paramedics were able to revive her before bringing her to the hospital.

Police said the woman was behind the wheel trying to evade police in a drug-related traffic pursuit around 11 p.m. Monday. P.

Police say they tried to pull over the woman’s car in the 8700 block of South Wood Street after they got a tip that there were drugs inside, but instead of stopping, they say she sped away.

Police chased the woman for about half a mile, as drugs went flying out of the car. Her car then hit railroad tracks, went airborne, and crashed into a light pole near 90th Street and Ashland Avenue.

Police say there were two children – a 3-year-old boy and an 11-month-old boy – and a man riding with the woman. All were critically wounded, but the children had been upgraded to good condition by 5 a.m.

The man and one child were brought to Advocate Christ, while the other child was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital at the University of Chicago Medicine.

Police say they found drugs and a weapon inside the car.

As of 9:45 a.m., no charges had been filed.

    Stupid, just stupid. Why would you do something so crazy with Kids in the car? We see where her mind was. You already know what will happen if caught before you do such stupid things.

    Chicago police. When she is out of the hospital can you send the crack head my way? My electric chair needs some smack!


    These are the same people,protesting,marching,shouting threats in the Martin shooting,to me just another group of ghetto thugs along with the future ones.

    “C’mon kids – get in the car. Mommy has to score some dope so she get a buzz tonight.”

  • Spookiest spook

    Jesse, we have a new cause for you. What are you waiting for? Oops, sorry, no Whites involved = no interest. Figures.

    I just love reading a story like this. It simply epitomizes what I and so many others already know.
    These NE@ROES are a waste of life. They have no purpose in society. To endanger two children like that merely demonstrates their lack of morals and any good judgement and their total disregard for life itself.
    While I am glad the children are ok I am also glad this happened, why? The world needs to know about the NE@RO PLAGUE………for sadly there is no cure..

    Lyndia had no business keeping her grandchildren in the car with her while she was doing that.
