[June 13, 2014] CHICAGO (Reuters) - Four people were killed and one person seriously injured when their car hit a wall behind a store on Chicago's northwest side early on Thursday, police said.

The vehicle appeared to have been traveling at a high rate of speed and lost control, according to local media, quoting police at the scene.

The two front seat passengers were wearing seat belts, but the three in the back were not, according to Elliott Musial, an investigator with the Chicago Police Department's major accidents division, quoted on WBBM radio.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office did not yet have identifications or ages for the four who died. Police at the scene told local media that the victims appeared to be in their 20s and late teens.
