CHICAGO –– A man and three women died early Sunday when the driver of a fast-moving car lost control and ran head-on into a Chicago Transit Authority bus on the Near West Side, police said.

Police said the driver of the car was a 27-year-old man. As he drove west on Madison Street “at a high rate of speed,” police said, he lost control of the car, and it hit a parked car before it slammed into the bus.

The driver and all three female passengers in the car died. The bus driver and three passengers also were taken to hospitals for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Alcohol was found in the car,, but it was not immediately clear where in the vehicle it was or whether its container open. Toxicology tests are common after crash with multiple fatalities, and the results typically take weeks to be returned.
