Three Chicago men were injured early Saturday morning following a single vehicle crash in south Evanston, police said.

The three were taken to St. Francis Hospital after their car crashed just after 3:30 a.m. in the 300 block of Sheridan Road, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. The driver, 28, is under arrest pending a DUI investigation. He broke three bones in his leg and ankle and was taken into surgery.

A 28-year-old passenger was taken to the hospital with bleeding on his brain, the most serious of the injuries, Dugan said. A 29-year-old passenger had a broken femur.

The driver has not yet been formally charged in the crash.
