Tour bus hits DLSD support beam in the Loop; 1 seriously hurt: CFD
A Big Bus Tours vehicle heading to lower Randolph Street hit a DuSable Lake Shore Drive support beam in the Loop, Chicago fire officials said.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- One person was seriously injured when a double-decker tour bus struck a support beam in the Loop on Saturday afternoon, the Chicago Fire Department said.

CFD said the bus was trying to go from the Randolph Street exit of DuSable Lake Shore Drive to lower Randolph Street.

That's when the Big Bus Tours vehicle struck the support beam that holds DuSable Lake Shore Drive because it was too tall to clear it, CFD said.

CFD said one adult was taken to Northwestern Hospital in serious condition. Thirty-one other people refused treatment on the scene.

Police have not said if any citations will be issued.

Further information was not immediately available.
