WELCOME TO THE CHI. STAY OFF THE STREETS

L noted something when she first started coming to the Chi. Honestly, I never noticed it before, but today's Tribune reflects nicely what L noticed:

A crash involving a car and a semi-trailer truck on the Kennedy Expressway, and debris on the CTA Red Line tracks on the city's South Side snarled the rush hour this morning for Chicago commuters, WGN-Ch. 9 reported.

A Lexus station wagon and a truck collided shortly after 7 a.m., shutting down all lanes of the inbound Kennedy at Sacramento Avenue on the city's Northwest Side.

Traffic quickly backed up to Harlem Avenue as emergency responders rushed to the scene, WGN reported. Some traffic was squeezing past the accident scene on the shoulder as crews worked to remove the car and truck.

The inbound Kennedy was reopened shortly before 8 a.m.

Information about the accident and injuries to those involved was not immediately available.


The story was traffic. The possibility of injuries or death was raised *after* the fact that some cars were able to squeeze by on the shoulder.

Welcome to the Chi. Stay off the streets.
