4 dead, 3 injured in Des Plaines crash

Four people were killed and three others were injured in a three-car crash in suburban Des Plaines on Thursday evening, police said.

About 8:55 p.m., a Mercedes-Benz was driving at a “high rate of speed” west in the 100 block of East Northwest Highway, according to a statement from Des Plaines police.

The Mercedes slammed into a Chevrolet Impala that was turning into a parking lot from the eastbound lanes of Northwest Highway.

That pushed the Impala back to the eastbound lanes and into a Toyota Highlander that was driving east.

The three people in the Impala, all of whom were related, were pronounced dead at nearby hospitals.

The driver of the Mercedes also was pronounced dead.

A passenger in the Mercedes was taken in critical condition to Lutheran General Hospital.

Two people in the Toyota suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene.

Northwest Highway was shut down for several hours as the crash was investigated.
