Car-nage On Kedzie: Bus Driver Passes Out, Hits 21 Parked Cars
Perhaps it’s a Christmas miracle that no one was seriously injured or even killed Friday morning in the Avondale neighborhood.
A CTA bus driver was driving north on Kedzie Avenue, missed a turn onto Diversey and lost consciousness due to some sort of medical emergency around 8:40 AM according to DNA Info Chicago. The bus careened into cars along both sides of Kedzie, slamming into a total of 21 parked cars before finally being stopped by completely upending one car with another.
Traffic was halted in both directions for hours.
While two people were injured and taken to area hospitals for treatment, neither were injured critically.
