CHICAGO - Three juveniles were arrested and charged with armed vehicular hijacking and one was charged with murder as their fleeing stolen vehicle killed a 55-year-old woman when they crashed in the Little Village neighborhood.

One adult from suburban Crystal Lake was also charged with misdemeanors in this case.

The incident happened over the course of five hours Wednesday evening at multiple locations across the southwest side but the culmination occurred in the Little Village neighborhood at the intersection of W. 31st Street and the S. Kedzie Avenue.

The incident began around 6:55 p.m. that night when police said multiple offenders exited a stolen white pickup truck and committed an armed vehicular hijacking of a 65-year-old woman, stealing her black Honda, on the 3400 block of S. Claremont in the McKinley Park neighborhood on the city's southwest side. This group then reportedly drove to the area of the 1900 block of W. 21st Pl. on the Lower West Side where they committed a second armed vehicular hijacking, taking another Honda from another woman, this victim being 25-years-old.

Officers were reportedly then dispatched to a call of multiple offenders attempting to set a white pickup truck on fire in the 3400 block of S. Leavitt back in the McKinley Park neighborhood. This group was then allegedly spotted by police entering a black Honda and fleeing the area.

Responding officers spotted the black Honda and attempted to curb the vehicle, but the offenders continued driving. The fleeing vehicle then crashed into a Toyota, driven by a 55-year-old woman, in the 3100 block of S. Kedzie in the Little Village neighborhood. The crash occurred shortly before 12:30 a.m. Thursday.

The 55-year-old female in the Toyota was rushed to Mt. Sinai Hospital where she died from the injuries she sustained in the crash. She was later identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office as Dominga Flores, 55, of Chicago.

The group was taken into custody and two weapons were recovered from the stolen vehicle that crashed.
