Hathaway's 2012 Chevrolet Equinox rear-ended a 2005 Land Rover that had stopped to let a pedestrian cross, and Bezek's 2008 Chevy Equinox rear-ended Hathaway's vehicle, which caused it to hit the Land Rover again.
Bezek and her three passengers—a 42-year-old, a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old—were transported to La Grange Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. All three vehicles were damaged.
