A Chicago man is a series of crashes on the Southwest Side that injured 11 people Wednesday night between the 8200- and 8700- blocks of South Western Avenue. Witnesses say Anthony Parson rear-ended a dozen other vehicles as he drove down the street in his van.

Police report all --but one-- of those who were hurt are expected to be released from the hospital Thursday.

Officers arrested Parson after he crashed into a fence. He's charged with DUI and drug possession.
