Party Bus Problem
The driver of an SUV was charged with DUI after he sideswiped a bus rented out for a party on the inbound Eisenhower Expressway, injuring 19 people, Illinois state police said.
Fiftee people on the bus and four people in the beige SUV were injured when the SUV hit the left side of the bus and rolled over around 2:30 a.m. near the Ashland Avenue exit, state police said. Most of the injuries were minor, but one person suffered a broken leg, authorities said.
The bus is owned by a private limo service that chauffeurs customers around the city in customized buses and SUVs with flat screen televisions, stereo systems and even a dance floor, according to the company's website.
We got a letter about this later this same morning:
- SCC, you've heard about these party buses? They travel the west and south side, loaded with guns, drugs, gang bangers and strippers. They are traveling problems, coming to a ghetto corner near you.
