A woman was killed early Thursday morning after four alleged carjackers crashed a stolen vehicle into her car, Chicago police said.
Charges are pending against multiple suspects, according to Chicago police, following a crash in the 3100 block of South Kedzie Avenue that left Dominga Flores, 55, dead.
Just before 7 p.m. Wednesday evening, four people carjacked a 65-year-old woman in the 3400 block of South Claremont Avenue, making off with her black Honda, police said. They then drove that stolen vehicle to the 1900 block of West 21st Place, where they allegedly carjacked a second victim.
Police officers were then dispatched following a report of multiple people attempting to set a pickup truck on fire in the 3400 block of South Leavitt Street, but they allegedly fled the scene in that black Honda.
Responding officers located the Honda and attempted to stop the vehicle at around 12:30 a.m. Thursday morning, but the individuals drove away and struck another vehicle driven by a 55-year-old woman, later identified as Flores, on South Kedzie, police said.
All four suspects were arrested at that scene, and police said they recovered two weapons from their vehicle. Flores was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, and later identifed by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.
