A 17-year-old girl was critically injured after the car she was driving jumped a curb and hit a tree in Lakeview early Monday, police said.
The black Honda sedan was traveling south in the 2800 block of North Ashland Avenue when the girl lost control of the vehicle and crashed at 12:05 a.m.
The girl suffered “trauma to the body,” according to police, and was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center in critical condition. No other injures were reported.
It wasn’t immediately clear how fast the vehicle was traveling and a police spokesperson did not say whether there had been any other contributing factors behind the crash.
Area 3 detectives are investigating.
