Unsafe U-turn causes car accident that kills 1, injures 4

Drivers in Illinois are often exposed to potentially life-threatening injuries. This is especially true on weekend nights when city streets are particularly busy. Unfortunately, when a driver fails to take due care, and negligence leads to a car accident, any passengers that may be in the vehicle will be exposed to the same dangers.

Illinois car accident claims life of 1 driver and injures another

One driver was killed, and another one seriously injured in a crash in McHenry County. The sheriff's office reported that the car accident occurred on Illinois South Route 31 shortly after 6 p.m. on a recent Monday. The accident investigation is ongoing, but some details have been made available.

Although there is a legal limit for alcohol consumption by drivers, even a small amount of alcohol can affect a driver's ability to maintain control of a vehicle. Alcohol is known to affect reaction times, as well as a driver's ability to properly perceive and observe what's going on in or near the vehicle. An Illinois man recently suffered serious injuries in a car accident in which he was a passenger in a pickup truck.

Single vehicle crashes in Illinois have claimed many lives and caused injuries to many more. Jefferson County authorities are investigating a single-car accident that resulted in the death of a driver and caused serious injuries to a passenger.
