4 die in car that crashes into Chicago bus

CHICAGO (AP) _ Chicago police say four people in a car have been killed in a head-on collision with a city bus.

Police spokeswoman Officer Michelle Tannehill says the accident occurred about 5:50 a.m. Sunday on the city’s west side. She says the car was speeding and hit a parked car. She says the car’s driver then lost control and the vehicle collided with a Chicago Transit Authority bus.

Another police spokesman, Officer Michael Carroll, said later Sunday that all four people in the car died. And he said the bus driver and four passengers were taken to hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski says the crash involved a No. 20 bus that was heading eastbound on Madison.
