1 dead in interstate car crash

On April 30, a car accident that took place on an Illinois highway left one person dead and several others with serious injuries. The crash took place on Interstate 94 and Buckley Road at about 11:49 a.m. It caused the eastbound lanes to be closed for about three hours.

The 62-year-old female driver of a 2007 Dodge allegedly lost control of her vehicle and struck a 2005 Honda Pilot, which was being driven by a 59-year-old Kenosha man. This collision caused a chain reaction accident that ultimately involved the 2007 Dodge, a 2015 Dodge Caravan, the 2005 Honda, a Mercedes, a Kenworth hauling a trailer and another 2007 Honda.

The driver of the 2015 Dodge Caravan, aged 62, was taken to a hospital where he died due to the severity of his injuries. A 60-year-old passenger in the same vehicle was also hospitalized and remained in critical condition. A 32-year-old Chicago resident, who was driving the Mercedes, suffered injuries that were minor. There were no other injuries associated with the accident were reported.

Most motor vehicle accidents are attributable to human factors. While it is unclear why the driver of the Dodge lost control of her vehicle, it could have been due to her being distracted by a cellphone, for example. When people are injured in a collision that has been caused by a negligent motorist, a personal injury attorney could help them seek compensation for their medical expenses and other applicable losses through a lawsuit filed against the at-fault driver.
