Four people were injured--one critically--in a rollover crash at 95th Street on the southbound Dan Ryan at 3:30 a.m. early Saturday morning, according to Illinois State Police District Trooper Teressa Allen. Four men between the ages of 19-25 were driving in a 2003 Chevy Tahoe when they tried to cut across three lanes while traveling at a high speed, Allen said to the Chicago Sun-Times. The driver lost control and rolled the car 360 degrees where it finally came to a stop upside down on a guardrail.

All four men were ejected from the vehicle. Three of them suffered minor injuries of broken fingers and a 25-year-old man was critically injured, but his injuries were not life threatening, Allen said. Only one person was wearing a seat belt at the time, she said. Two of the men, including the critically injured one, were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, another one went to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, and the other man went to Little Company of Mary in Evergreen Park.

The four men were issued citations for improper lane usage, driving under the influence, and failing to wear a seat belt.
