Four people were injured early Saturday when a pickup truck that blew a stop sign crashed into a taxicab on the Near West Side.

The crash happened about 2:15 a.m. at Ogden Avenue and Congress Parkway, according to police News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada.

A Ford pickup truck was heading east on Congress Parkway when it failed to stop at a stop sign at Ogden and struck a 2013 Toyota Camry that was heading south on Ogden, Estrada said. According to a witness report the Camry was a taxicab. The Ford fled the scene of the crash.

The driver of the Camry, as well as three passengers, were taken to local hospitals, according to police. Their injuries were not believed to be life-threatening. At least five ambulances were sent to the scene.
