SUV leaves trail of destruction after plowing into Illinois mall


An SUV driver smashed into a Chicagoland mall Friday and barrelled around the shopping center — sending people running for their lives.

The wild incident happened at the Woodfield Mall in the suburb of Schaumburg at around 2:30 p.m. local time, when the car rammed through the Sears storefront, according to reports.

Video posted to Twitter shows the black SUV driving through the first floor of the mall around kiosks as shoppers run for their lives.

“Stop driving!” one shopper can be heard shouting in the clip.

Another man shouts, “What the f—k!” as the vehicle can be seen leaving a trail of destruction behind before a loud crash is heard.

The SUV then reverses and continuing driving as shoppers can be heard yelling.

“So this just happened at Woodfield. I’m safe. Jesus Christ,” the Twitter user who posted the video tweeted.

Authorities had swarmed the scene. It was not immediately clear whether anyone was injured.
