A devastating car crash occurred on the Far South Side of Chicago, specifically on Torrence Avenue, resulting in the loss of one life and leaving nine others injured, according to officials.
The incident took place earlier today, when a man driving a car veered into the southbound lane and collided head-on with an SUV carrying a 30-year-old man and four other individuals.
Fortunately, all three children present in the SUV were reported to be in good condition, while the two adults sustained serious injuries.
Additionally, two other vehicles attempted to avoid the collision but ended up in critical condition themselves.
One of the cars collided with a light pole, while the other struck an object.
The scene of the accident on the Far South Side depicts a grim sight, with mangled cars scattered across the area.

The Chicago Police Department is yet to release further details regarding the incident.
This heart-wrenching collision serves as a tragic reminder of the dangers associated with reckless driving and the need for enhanced road safety measures.
