At about 11:30 p.m. a woman driving a Honda Civic LX southbound on Harlem Avenue was hit by a driver in a Toyota 4runner driving eastbound on 23rd, from the North Riverside shopping center.

The two drivers met at the intersection of Harlem and 23rd after the eastbound car passed a red light crossing Harlem. The driver in the Honda was making a left turn onto 23rd road.  Both were turning into the Cermak Plaza and injured on impact. The woman driving the Honda Civic LX was hospitalized.

“I didn’t even know until I saw all the motion and ambulances outside. I was just out to shop. It was bad, really bad–windows shattered. People just don’t stop.” Pedro Garcia, a witness at the incident, said.

The condition of both drivers is unknown. Berwyn police did not comment on the accident.
