A man faces criminal charges after he caused two accidents including one in the Edgewater neighborhood and another after driving the wrong way on Lake Shore Drive during morning rush hour.

The first accident happened at Broadway and Thorndale in Edgewater around 7:15 a.m. Thursday morning. The man responsible fled the scene of the accident.

About ten minutes later, he was again seen driving south down 5200 Lake Shore DriveĀ  against traffic in the north bound lanes. He eventually crashed into a black Mercedes.

The Chicago Fire Department reported that the male suspect was injured during the incidents and was transported to Weiss Memorial Hospital. The driver of the Mercedes was also taken to Weiss for minor injuries.
