(CBS) — Two people died overnight after a shooting and car crash in south suburban Harvey.
After shots were fired at 149th Street and Center, a car slammed into a pole near 149th Street and Wood around 11 p.m. Thursday, Harvey Police chief Eddie Winters said.
Two individuals were ejected. One of them died.
Police say they showed up and saw cars leaving the scene.
Police say they started chasing another car near 154th and Hoyne, and that car slammed into the back of a pickup truck.
Dwayne Kelley said he was inside the truck.
“It was very scary because, I can’t hear too good and I didn’t expect to get rammed from behind,” Kelley said.
Kelley said he had bumps on his head and injuries to his neck and elbow.
He was released from the hospital early Friday morning.
Police said they found guns in the car that hit Kelley–but no suspects. They took off on foot and got away. Harvey police said, as of Friday evening, no one was in custody.
Kayla Brisco said the final crash knocked a stop sign off at her corner.
“It makes me want to just pack everything up and move and leave everything behind,” Brisco said. “You should feel safe where you live.”
Officers said two other people suffered gunshot wounds and took themselves to the hospital.
Officers are still questioning people.
In the village of Robbins, which is a 10 minute drive from the Harvey crash scene, five people were transported to area hospitals after a shooting. Two are in critical condition. The Harvey authorities said they can’t confirm if the shootings are related.
