Driver of lawn tractor dies in rear-end car accident

When Illinois drivers come across unconventional vehicles on the road, they may not be prepared for the slow speeds such vehicles are able to travel. A man driving a lawn tractor lost his life in a recent car accident on Illinois 124. Similar to motorcycle riders, drivers of such vehicles have little or no protection against the impact of a collision.

The busy roads of Illinois are often the scenes of multi-vehicle accidents.

3 injured in rear-end car accident file suit against driver

A driver's momentary distraction may result in a rear-end collision with devastating consequences. These types of car accidents are often caused by drivers who drive too fast and fail to maintain safe following distances. A rear-end car accident often leads to severe injuries that can jeopardize a victim's ability to continue living life on his or her own terms. The occupants of a stationary car can also suffer life-changing head, neck and back injuries because of the force of another vehicle hitting their vehicle from the rear.

Recent fatal car accident underscores aim of graduated driver law

After 15 teenagers lost their lives up in Tazewell County in a period of 15 months, the Illinois graduated driver law became effective in 2008. This law is designed to limit the number of senseless teenage fatalities by restricting the driving privileges of teens, to some extent, until they become more experienced drivers. A recent Aurora car accident that took the lives of two teenagers and injured others may underscore the need for young drivers and their parents to revisit the requirements of the graduated driver law.

An enraged driver who causes a car accident may have to face devastating legal consequences.
