The crash happened around 8:45 a.m. Friday morning and briefly closed 79th Street.
The impact caused the Saturn to careen into a light pole and the Impala to overturn. The Impala came to rest on its roof in the middle of 79th Street.
According to police, all those involved in the accident — including an infant in the SUV — were transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn with non-life threatening injuries.
“The baby seems to be fine but is just being checked as a precaution,” Burbank Police Division Chief Mike Dudlo said.
Witnesses said bystanders came to the aid of the accident victims before EMS arrived.
Police said both motorists possessed a valid drivers license and insurance. The driver of the Saturn was cited for traffic violations, according to Dudlo.
