Car accident: Car wedged under semi kills 1, critically injures 2

One of many crashes on Illinois roads that have recently claimed the lives of young people who are on the brink of adulthood occurred in Harvey on a recent Wednesday evening. One person was killed, and two more suffered critical injuries when the vehicle they were traveling in became trapped underneath a semi truck. Police reported that they had reason to believe the car accident resulted from the driver being distracted and possibly speeding.

Drunk driving accident: Statistics are eye-opening

Impaired driving is a matter of great concern nationwide, including in Illinois. All people can be victims of a drunk driving accident, whether they are occupants of other vehicles, passengers riding with intoxicated drivers or pedestrians. It is reported that the United States is annually burdened with $50 billion in costs related to DUI crashes. Average figures indicate that one such accident is recorded every 45 minutes.

Father dies in motorcycle crash 9 months after daughter's death

The father of a young Illinois woman who was killed in an apparent drunk driving accident in January lost his own life in an accident on a recent Saturday afternoon. This tragedy occurred less than two months after the deceased man's wife filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the person who was allegedly responsible for the accident in which their daughter was killed. Three bars that allegedly served alcohol to that driver on the night of their daughter's death were also named in that lawsuit. The motorcycle crash that killed the father occurred almost exactly nine months after his daughter's death.

Passenger dies in alleged drunk driving accident

When a loved one is killed in an accident while traveling as a passenger in a vehicle that is operated by a drunk driver, it would be only natural for the surviving family members to want to hold the driver liable. Drivers are responsible for the safety of their passengers, and deaths resulting from a drunk driving accident are always preventable. An Illinois family may choose to take legal action after the recent death of a loved one under such circumstances.
