A 9-year-old boy has died after a crash involving two sport-utility vehicles and a CTA bus on the South Side Saturday afternoon.

The wreck, which sent nine other people to hospitals, happened in the 6900 block of South Halsted Street in the city’s Englewood neighborhood about 4:15 p.m., police said.

A dark-colored Chevrolet SUV was westbound on 69th Street when its driver disobeyed a red light and hit a CTA bus traveling through the intersection, causing the boy to be thrown from the SUV, police said.

The bus then went out of control and hit a dark-colored Mercury SUV.

The boy was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Nine other people were taken to area hospitals with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

There was not word on charges or citations but police are investigating.
