On Wednesday night, February 20, there was a car accident that killed one and injured five, including two police officers.
Eric Gray, 21, of the 2200 block of East 92nd Street, was pronounced dead at 3:45 a.m. at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
The police officers were in their squad car when the accident occurred and Gray was in the other vehicle that was involved in the crash.
The police officers did not suffer from life-threatening injuries and are expected to recover fully. The three civilians in the other vehicle were taken to Advocate Trinity Hospital and Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, but authorities did not immediately know how severe their injuries were.
No other details have been released and will be available some time on Thursday.
