About 10:41 a.m. a northbound No. 8 Halsted bus hit a building in the 3500 block of South Halsted Street and a Cadillac that was also driving north, police said. A total of 11 vehicles were involved in the crash, and five people were hospitalized as a result.

One staffer was inside the theater at the time, according to Emily Nevius, a co-owner of the Ramova which is also co-owned by three Chicago-born music superstars and has been renovated.

“We are working closely with CPD and assisting them with their investigation into this matter,” a CTA spokesperson said in a statement.
