CHICAGO (CBS) — Two people were arrested Thursday after police said they fled from a traffic stop and ended up crashing right in front of the main entrance to Lollapalooza in Grant Park.
Police on the scene said a driver took off from an officer who had pulled them over near the University of Illinois at Chicago campus on the Near West Side.
Officers followed the car, which went on to crash into a vehicle about a mile and a half away at Michigan Avenue and Harrison Street – right in front of the main entrance to the Lollapalooza festival that is now in progress.
The car then crashed into a second car, before police took two people into custody by officers who were working Lollapalooza, police said.
A gun and drugs were found in the car, police said on the scene. Police said the drugs included illegal marijuana.
