CHICAGO (WLS) --Investigators said they believe speed played a role in a violent crash on Chicago's Far South Side that left three people dead and one person critically injured.
A motorcycle and an SUV collided around 10:20 p.m. Monday after the bike ran a red light at the intersection of South Indianapolis Avenue and South Avenue B in the city's East Side neighborhood, police said. That's near the Illinois-Indiana state line.
The impact of the crash caused a dent in the SUV, which rolled over onto its side. Ronesha Delaney witnessed the crash.
"The truck was coming southbound. It was trying to turn. As it was turning, the motorcycle was going like 100 mph. The motorcycle ran into the side of the truck and the people flipped out. It was crazy," Delaney said.
A female passenger in the SUV was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:50 p.m., the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office said. She was identified to authorities as Jamie Trickle, 35, of the 1700-block of West North Shore Avenue.
Two men riding the motorcycle were also pronounced dead at the scene. The medical examiner's office has not released their identities.
A 28-year-old woman who was driving the SUV was rushed to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where she is listed in critical condition.
The Chicago Police Major Accidents Investigation Unit is working to determine what caused the crash.
