PARK RIDGE — Park Ridge Police are releasing little information about a Dec. 22 one-vehicle crash that left three people hospitalized.
According to the Park Ridge Fire Department the accident occurred at 3:20 a.m. on Cedar Street between Wisner and Elmore Streets and involved a Jeep Wrangler that struck a tree. Two of the occupants of the Jeep were transported to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge with multiple non-life threatening injuries, according to Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Sorensen. A third individual was taken to Resurrection Medical Center in Chicago and released later that day.
Park Ridge Police Cmdr. Jason Leavitt said the department’s Major Crash Unit was investigating the accident, but he declined to provide specifics about what led up to the crash.
The occupants of the vehicle, one of whom reportedly left the scene after the accident, have been identified as a 19-year-old man and three 20-year-old men.
Leavitt did say the Police Department is working with the State’s Attorney’s Office.
Sorensen did not return phone calls from the Park Ridge Herald-Advocate.
