January 22, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A 17-year-old girl died early Saturday in an SUV crash on Chicago's Far North Side.


The accident happened at approximately 2 a.m. near the 2400-block of W. North Shore Ave., which is in the Rogers Park neighborhood.

The teen girl died after the reportedly speeding sport-utility vehicle she was inside disregarded a 4-way stop and crashed into another car.

Rogers Park District police Lt. Donald Holmen said the SUV that was northbound on Artesian Avenue struck another vehicle that was westbound on North Shore.

Five others, including the man driving the SUV who was two hours into his 20th birthday on Saturday, were left hospitalized after the wreck.

The teen killed has been identified as 17-year-old Bahra Echmail, of 5741 N. Washtenaw Ave. She was pronounced dead at 3:14 a.m. at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, according to a spokesman for the Cook County Medical Examiner's office.

A police spokesperson says the 2003 Ford Explorer's driver was reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed and that the SUV did not yield at the stop sign at the intersection. The vehicle reportedly hit a 1997 Nissan Maxima driven by a 23-year-old man.

Police also say, after the collision, the SUV continued north and hit two parked cars, a 1994 4-door Chevrolet and a 1994 Toyota Camry, then came to rest after jumping the curb and hitting a tree on the west side of Artesian Avenue.

The occupants of the SUV had to be extricated, including the girl killed, police said.

The lone occupant of the Maxima was not hospitalized.

Authorities said the SUV's driver and a 16-year-old girl were both taken in critical condition to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, while a 17-year-old male was in "guarded" or serious to critical condition, also at Saint Francis.

Two 15-year-old girls reportedly were in "stable" condition at other Chicago-area hospitals.

Maybe when you loose someone to this horrific tragedy you will understand how it feels. You cannot blame the victims here, it shows how little compasion you have as well as what little understanding. This accident should teach you what not to do! And NO It is not everyone's responsibility, it was the driver's and his alone. If everyone in the car had been drinking, it was still the driver's responsibility.... ALL the blame lies on him for not making the correct choice to leave the keys with a sober person or not drive at all.

Please don't try to make light of what the driver did, he killed someone! I hope Illinois has harder drunk driver punishments than Texas, this kid deserves to serve prison time.
