"The small white one just kept going and the SUV, like, didn't have enough time to stop and just crashed," said eyewitness Nick Goshen.

Other witnesses said the SUV crashed into some parked cars and burst into flames.

"I came out and my car was on fire," said Martha Saez.

Two people were transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn while one person was taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood according to Fire Media Affairs spokesman Richard Rosado.
