Crash involving CPD cars kills 84-year-old woman

An 84-year-old woman was killed in a four-car crash that involved two police vehicles on Saturday night.

A marked police van, SUV and "several civilian vehicles" were involved in the crash about 10 p.m. in the 1200 block of North Laramie Avenue in the Austin neighborhood.

The victim was identified by relatives as Verona E. Gunn. Her son, Bishop Dwight Gunn, told Fox 32 News on Sunday night that Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson had reached out to the family and assured him the crash was under investigation.

Gunn shared on social media:

Ten Chicago police officers and one other civilian were also injured. Initially, reports were that none of the injuries were serious.

The Chicago Police Department offered its sympathy, tweeting: "Our heartfelt condolences go out to the Gunn family over this devastating loss... CPD's Major Accident Investigation Unit is investigating the circumstances of this tragic accident."
