Chicago, IL (June 9, 2024) – One person was airlifted to a Chicago hospital, and another person also sustained injuries in a two-vehicle crash that happened on June 7 in the Westchester Township area of Chicago, police reported.

The crash occurred at around 7:00 a.m. at the intersection of U.S. Highway 20 and Brummitt Road, according to a release from Sgt. Ben McFalls, public information officer for the Porter County Sheriff’s Department.
