Car Narrowly Misses Allstate Showcase Studio

A Lexus ES narrowly missed the Allstate Showcase Studio early this morning during Matt Bubala’s overnight show.

The driver flew past the studio, striking a light pole, before weaving around fire hydrants and coming to a rest right outside the doors of Tribune Tower.

Police arrived at the scene almost an hour later, and a tow truck removed the vehicle by 5:15 a.m. Police left the scene a little before 5:45 a.m.

The driver has not been found, yet.

Listen back on Matt Bubala’s play-by-play of the events that unfolded with WGN Traffic Central’s Bill Soronis, News Anchor Steve Bertrand, and Producer Caitlin Fry here:
