Vehicle Plows Into Pedestrian, Hits Building In Park Manor

CHICAGO (CBS) -- A driver ran a red light and hit another vehicle, struck and critically injured a pedestrian, and finally slammed into a building in Park Manor Monday afternoon, police said.

A Jeep headed east on 75th Street ran a red light and hit the Ford, police said. The Jeep then hit a pedestrian who was on the sidewalk on 75th Street, and ultimately slammed into and damaged a building, police said.

Photos from the scene showed the blue Jeep up against a damaged brick building that had its overhead gates down. A Divvy bike was also seen on the ground, though it was not clear whether the vehicle hit the bike.
