Hospital valet allegedly mixes up pedals, crashes car of couple in labor

An SUV crashed into the front lobby of Northwestern Medicine's Prentice Women's Hospital on Chicago's Near North Side overnight.

A source told ABC7 Eyewitness News that a couple having a baby gave their keys to a valet. Police said a valet driver confused the gas pedal with the brake pedal and drove through the revolving doors around 2:45 a.m. Wednesday.

The building, located near East Superior Street and North Fairbanks Court, sustained minor damage. No one was injured.

Police do not expect any citations to be issued.
