Multi-car pileup ties up traffic on South Loop


A multi-car pileup on the South Loop left traffic tied up for about an hour Saturday night.

Two car accidents happened around the same time, just before 8:45 p.m. along the South Loop between Indiana and Memphis Avenue.

One car rolled over and another spun completely around before crashing. Passengers in one of the vehicles were transported to the hospital. Some of those transported to the hospital were children.

The accidents caused a major back up of cars on the Loop. At one point, traffic was completely shut down and drivers had to detour by taking frontage roads. Traffic cleared up by 10 p.m.

No word yet on the conditions of the passengers who were taken to the hospital.
