    A shooting victim trying to drive himself to the hospital caused a car crash that left four others, including two children, wounded on Sunday, according to Chicago police.

    Just after 12 p.m., authorities said a 37-year-old man was driving in the 10100 block of South State St in the Roseland neighborhood on Chicago's Far South Side when he struck another vehicle.

    Two adults and two children were in the car, according to police.

    A 5-year-old girl and a 1-month-old boy were taken to hospitals in serious condition, according to police. A 24-year-old woman and a 45-year-old woman were taken to area hospitals and listed in good condition, authorities said.

    [NATL-DFW] Airlines Reading, Responding to Social Media Rants
    A new study says airlines are reading posts made by customers complaining over delayed or canceled flights and poor service, and are responding to those messages. Dallas-based Southwest Airlines has a team tracking Twitter, Facebook and other online sites 24 hours a day. When a customer vents about a problem, a representative reaches out to them. "The approach is really how can we help, wait a minute we hate to hear that.... so what is going on, give us some information and let's see what we can do to straighten this out," said Lisa Goode, with Southwest Airlines. Social media teams help airlines by rebooking customers or by helping keep them more calm by relaying information when problems crop up. (Published Thursday, Sept. 29, 2016)

    The shooting victim was also taken to a local hospital in serious condition with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

    Police did not release any further information on the location or circumstances of the shooting, and the investigation is ongoing.
