At 10:54 p.m., officers tried to stop a white Jeep Grand Cherokee that had been reported stolen in the 500 Block of North State, but the driver refused to pull over and sped off southbound on State.
The Jeep, occupied by three adults, turned westbound on Grand and ran a red light at Dearborn, where it struck a northbound taxi cab. The taxi then hit two pedestrians on the sidewalk, police said. A passenger in the taxi, 66-year-old Diana J. Lampsa, was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said. She lived in Palmyra, Wisconsin. #PRAYERS
