- A 24-year-old prison inmate escaped Monday on the Near West Side during an apparently planned getaway.
Harron Raggs, 24, broke away from an Illinois Department of Corrections transport vehicle about 12:40 p.m. in the 1100 block of South Oakley Boulevard in the city’s Tri-Taylor neighborhood, authorities said.
A short time later, someone in a red Chevrolet Impala picked him up at Taylor Street and Oakley. While fleeing, it plowed into an IDOC squad car, authorities said.
The Impala, which sustained damage to its right front, had no front license plate and its windows were tinted, authorities said.
