Nothing is more devastating than losing a child in a fatal accident. These situations are even more tragic when the car accident could have been prevented. The members of an Illinois family are picking up the pieces after a tragic car accident that caused the death of an 18-month-old toddler in early December.
The Illinois State Police reported that a 43-year-old man was eastbound on a state highway when he moved across the center line and into the lane of oncoming traffic. The reasons for this have not yet been determined. Police say that a 66-year-old woman who was traveling in the opposite direction attempted to avoid the collision, but failed, and was struck head on.
