CHICAGO — The White Sox said four fans were injured in a hit-and-run collision outside Guaranteed Rate Field before the team’s game Tuesday night against the Texas Rangers.
The pedestrians were injured shortly after 6:20 p.m. local time, the Chicago police and fire department said.
One of the pedestrians restrained the car as it fled the scene before the vehicle was pulled over by an ambulance on the nearby Dan Ryan Expressway, officials said. The person clinging to the car and one of the three people outside the stadium were in critical condition. The other two pedestrians were in serious condition, officials said.
According to the White Sox, the injured were treated at the scene and transported to nearby hospitals.
In addition, the driver of the vehicle and three other occupants were hospitalized with various injuries. Illinois State Police and Chicago Police arrested the suspect a few blocks from the scene of the hit-and-run.
All four occupants of the vehicle were in custody at the hospital, according to Fred Melan, the deputy chief of the Chicago Police Department.
“Our condolences go out to the four fans injured tonight, their families and friends, and the fans who witnessed the incident while en route to a baseball game,” the team said. “The Chicago White Sox organization thanks the Chicago Police Department, the Chicago Fire Department, the Illinois State Police and others, including the fans, who responded to the incident and provided immediate care to the victims.”
