Child Killed When Thrown From Car During Crash On Lower Wacker

CHICAGO — A child was killed after she was thrown from a car during a crash in downtown Chicago Friday.

Police said a Mazda 3 was driving on Lower Wacker Drive around 1 a.m. when the driver attempted to make a U-turn.  The Mazda clipped an Acura MDX that was traveling eastbound.

The Mazda then hit a wall, causing the girl, who appeared to be around 3 years old, to be ejected from the vehicle.

The child was not in a safety seat.

Two other people in the Mazda, a man and a woman, both 29, were taken to the hospital and are in critical condition.

The identities have not been released.
