The taxi was sitting in traffic when a wooden-type sign fell on top the taxi, shattering the entire windshield. The taxi driver sustained injuries to his arm and was transported to Northwestern Hospital in good condition.

The debris also struck a second vehicle, but that driver was not hurt.

Fire officials anticipate other potential trouble today due to the very high winds.

A Severe Wind Warning is in effect for the entire Chicago area until 6 p.m. Wednesday, with wind gusts up to 50-65 mph.
