Driver who caused fatal November bicycle accident admits to DUI

On an afternoon in November last year, a 33-year-old Illinois man was cycling on the shoulder of a Carbondale roadway when he was knocked down by a vehicle. Witnesses reported seeing the driver swerving across the traffic lanes before the vehicle struck the cyclist. Police were alerted about the bicycle accident, and officers arrived to find the man unconscious on the ground.

Alleged drunk driving accident injures 5 when car is rear-ended

A 36-year-old Illinois mother was recently arrested after rear-ending another vehicle. She faces multiple charges after failing a field sobriety test when police found four minor children, covered in spilled alcohol, in the car with her. Another bottle of liquor was allegedly found in a diaper bag in the car. Chicago Police reported that the driver was in an altercation with the occupants of the rear-ended vehicle when they arrived at the scene of the alleged drunk driving accident.

Rider airlifted after motorcycle accident on Illinois Route 92

Despite the regular calls for drivers of motor vehicles to keep a lookout for motorcycles, bike riders continue suffer severe -- and sometimes fatal -- injuries in accidents in which vehicle operators fail to yield.
