The four were riding in an SUV that struck a concrete column at around 3 a.m. Thursday in the 2000 block of West Adams Avenue.

The crash caused a fire in the SUV’s engine compartment, but a portable fire extinguisher was used to keep the flames from spreading.

The four victims were taken to Scott & White Medical Center.
