CHICAGO (WLS) -- An ambulance crashed into a building on Chicago's West Side Thursday morning, sending four people to the hospital.

The crash took place about 7:15 a.m. in the 2300-block of West Harrison Street, in Chicago's Tri-Taylor neighborhood, Chicago police said.

CPD said a 20-year-old woman, who was driving a sedan north, failed to yield to a southbound ambulance. The emergency vehicle had its lights and sirens on and was transporting a 53-year-old victim; she crashed into it, police said.

The ambulance then hit a parked commercial vehicle and a building.
