CRESTWOOD, Ill. (CBS) — Four people were injured early Friday, after their car flipped over into a creek in southwest suburban Crestwood.
CBS 2’s Courtney Gousman reports firefighters received a call for help around 2 a.m., from Playfield Park, where a car had landed upside down in about four feet of mud and water in Tinley Creek.
Crestwood Fire Chief Jon Bruce said the group of young people in the car never should have been in the park at that hour to begin with.
WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya reports police said four youths, between the ages of 14 and 21, were involved in “horseplay” at a popular teenage hangout behind Playfield Park, when things turned serious in a hurry.
“They actually lost control of the vehicle, and they went over a small berm, and down into the creek, upside-down,” said Crestwood Police Cmdr. David Alexander. “The initial investigation just says they were back there horseplaying, driving recklessly, being silly.”
