Recent Chicago Car Accident Results from Another Wrong-Way Driver

 Posted on March 02, 2012 in Car Accidents

Recent Chicago Car Accident Results from Another Wrong-Way Driver A recent car accident on the Kennedy Expressway marks the fourth Chicago car crash resulting from a driver heading the wrong way on the highway. As reported in The Morris Daily Herald, a vehicle driving inbound in the Kennedy Expressway’s outbound lane on the morning of February 22 clipped two cars before hitting a third head-on.

Police say that the 25-year-old female driver got onto the Kennedy Expressway at Armitage and that the accident occurred just south of North Avenue. Both the woman and the driver of the other car were extracted from their vehicles and taken to area hospitals in serious condition. According to reports, the errant driver may have smelled of alcohol. Unknown charges are currently pending against the wrong-way driver who caused the car crash.

Unfortunately, according to the Herald, all four of Chicago’s recent wrong-way car accidents have resulted in serious injuries for those involved. These injured parties may consider filing a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent drivers who caused the accidents. When you’re injured in a car accident that is the fault of another driver, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for medical bills, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.
