Alleged drunk driver causes personal injury in rear-end crash

Illinois drivers who take to the busy roads while they are under the influence of alcohol threaten not only their own lives but also the lives of other motorists and pedestrians. It is not uncommon for drivers to think they are quite capable of driving despite having consumed alcohol. However, alcohol can cause drowsiness and compromise a driver's perception of distance -- often leading to another party's injury.

Car accident injuries send 2 to hospital, claim 1 life

When an Illinois resident is involved in a car accident, there are many concerns. This is especially true if a car accident results in injuries. Medical expenses, loss of income that may affect mortgage payments or rent and other financial obligations, along with questions related to health and car insurance can cause high levels of anxiety.

Cross-over car accident kills 1, injures another

Driving on Illinois roads can be dangerous, and even drivers who keep a proper lookout can be caught unaware. Many drivers have lost their lives in collisions that were caused by drivers crossing the center line and traveling into the path of approaching vehicles. In some cases, unsuspecting drivers suffer life-changing injuries that may be devastating to victims and their families. One such car accident recently claimed one life and caused traumatic injuries to another person.

As Illinois drivers are approaching the holiday season, the number of car accidents caused by intoxicated drivers will likely increase. For many individuals, this time of the year is a sad reminder of lives lost or severe injuries suffered in accidents caused by drunk drivers. Police in Rock County reported that three people were injured on a recent Tuesday morning in a suspected drunk driving accident.
