CTA Board Member in Car Accident on Election Night

By Kevin Robinson in News on Feb 4, 2010 8:00PM

CTA Board Member Jacky Grimshaw made it to Governor Pat Quinn's election night party, but not without a few scrapes. According to the Sun-Times, Grimshaw's car was hit on North Lake Shore Drive by a taxi cab that had temporarily lost control in the snow. The cab changed lanes to regain control, hit the shoulder of the road and then hit Grimshaw's car. She said she had taken her car out that day to run some errands. Sporting a neck brace, she told the Sun-Times that next time it snows, she plans to take the CTA.
