Illinois woman arrested for hit-and-run accident

For those who live in cities, sometimes it is just easier to walk to where one wants to go instead of drive. With the increase in gas prices as well as the probability of getting caught in traffic, walking seems to be a better alternative. However, when one is a pedestrian, one must be cautious to avoid being hit by cars. Illinois pedestrians could be involved in an accident, such as a hit-and-run accident, and one could be seriously injured or possibly even killed.

3 Illinois pedestrians injured in a hit-and-run accident

When one chooses to get behind the wheel of a car and drive, one must pay full attention to the road, including any objects or persons near the road. Sometimes, if one is not paying full attention, pedestrians can seemingly come out of nowhere and in front of one's car, resulting in potential injuries. However, in the case of three Illinois pedestrians, being anywhere near the road, such as sitting on the curb, can be dangerous for pedestrians. The three pedestrians were injured in a hit-and-run accident when a man hit them with his vehicle and left the scene.

Drunk driving accident kills 2 young Illinois women

When one has a teenage child, letting them get behind the wheel of a car and start driving can be a scary thought. One must be able to teach one's child to make safe driving decisions, and one must trust that one's child will heed those lessons. However, many parents are not so much afraid of their own child's driving, but they are instead afraid of the unpredictability of all the other drivers on the road. For the parents of two Illinois teenagers, their fears came true when the two young women were killed in a drunk driving accident.

Motorcycle accident sends Illinois motorcyclist to the hospital

Every motorcyclist knows to take extra care when driving his or her motorcycle because of the risk involved when one chooses to drive a vehicle that is not enclosed. Motorcycles can drive just as fast as cars, but being in a vehicle that is not enclosed means that if a wreck occurs, even a more minor one, the motorcyclist is at a high risk of injury. However, not only do the motorcyclist in Illinois as well as the rest of the country need to watch out for themselves on the road, but also the drivers of other vehicles on the road should take extra care looking out for motorcyclists to prevent causing a motorcycle accident.

3 die in Illinois motorcycle crash with dump truck

It should come as no surprise that those driving larger vehicles should take more caution on the road because their larger size could potentially cause a lot of damage if a wreck occurs. It is also common knowledge that those who drive motorcycles should take more caution because, since the driver is in a small, not enclosed vehicle, the driver can be seriously injured if involved in a crash, regardless of the size of the other vehicle. Unfortunately, three people suffered fatal injuries involving an Illinois motorcycle crash with a dump truck earlier this week.
