Two Killed In Crash On Lake Shore Drive; Lanes Closed

Two people were killed and others were critically injured in an accident that shut down the southbound lanes of Lake Shore Drive after the Air and Water Show ended Saturday evening, police said.

The crash happened just south of Wilson on Lake Shore Drive at 6:06 p.m., authorities said.

At the scene of the accident later Saturday, police said two people died in the accident. Two heavily damaged cars remained in the southbound lanes Saturday night. A green Nissan appeared to have heavy damage to its front-end while the drivers’ side door of a black Honda Civic was also heavily damaged. A police officer could be seen removing bags of personal items from the Nissan Saturday night.

Update:  According to the Tribune, and the updated story in the Sun-Times, one of the dead is a six-year-old boy and the other is his mother.  Just heartbreaking.
