A van filled with special needs students collided with another van this morning on the Far South Side, sending nine students and two adults to area hospitals.
About 8:42 a.m., a van from St. Colette School carrying the special needs children had "a low speed minor collison" with another vehicle near the intersection of 111th Street and Wentworth Avenue, said Larry Langford, a spokesman for the Chicago Fire Department.
As a precaution, nine children were taken in good condition to area hospitals. Two adults were taken to the hospital in fair-to-serious condition, Langford said.
The injured went to Advocate Trinity Hospital, Little Company of Mary Hospital, Metro-South Hospital and Roseland Community Hospital, he said.
The driver of the van carrying the children, a 56-year-old woman, was cited for failure to yield, police said.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
