CHICAGO (WLS) -- A driver lost control of their SUV and ended up flipping over a barrier wall along Lake Shore Drive Wednesday night, Chicago police said.

The crash occurred in the 800-block of North Lake Shore Drive at about 10:35 p.m. Police said a Chevy Trailblazer was changing lanes when it lost control.

The SUV swerved to avoid a car that was in the lane when it struck a concrete median and a light pole before ending up on the edge of Lake Michigan.
