Chicago cop car pileup site
Intersection of LaSalle and Lake Streets


A
lthough this intersection had roughly 13 seconds of screen-time, it played host to the culmination of perhaps the finest police chase ever shown on the silver screen. Dozens of Chicago Police Department squad cars crashed here after Elwood's fine driving skills helped him and Jake elude capture. This site is easily accessible on foot or in a car. The buildings around here have changed a little, but avid Blues Brothers fans will know where they are almost immediately.

Getting there: Take Michigan Avenue south to Randolph Street. Go right on Randolph to LaSalle and turn right to go north. Go one block and you're there.
