A black Ford SUV flipped on its side after the driver lost control of the vehicle and hit two parked cars on Washington Boulevard between Ridgeland and Harvey avenues on Thursday afternoon.

Two witnesses at the scene said a child was in the vehicle at the time of the crash, but no one appeared seriously injured.

The Oak Park Police Department could not immediately be reached for comment.

Oak Parker Lori Teague, the owner of a white Ford Escape that was struck by the SUV, said her vehicle is not drivable.

She said she heard a loud bang from her nearby apartment and went outside to see her car and another vehicle, a Buick sedan, had been struck by the SUV.

Ann Samar and Steve Mantooth, both of Oak Park, who also live in a nearby apartment building, are the owners of the Buick.

"We came outside and saw our car hit in the back and black SUV flipped on its side," Samar said.
