Multi-vehicle crash leads to multiple injuries

On July 2, four people were injured and taken to the hospital following a multi-vehicle accident on the Dan Ryan Expressway. In addition to those who were taken to the hospital, six more individuals were treated on the scene.

The accident involved a collision at approximately 6:55 p.m. including three cars, a limousine, and two box trucks. According to Illinois State Police, alcohol may have played a factor in the car accident.

According to the Chicago Fire Department, five ambulances were sent to the accident, located near 69th Street, at approximately 7:00 p.m.

Three people involved in the accident were seriously to critically inured, while the fourth person sent to the hospital is in fair to serious condition. It is unknown at this time what types of injuries were sustained.

State police have reported that the injured, which included a father and son, were sent to three separate hospitals, with one going to Saint Bernard Hospital and Health Care Center, one to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, and two to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County.

Despite the seriousness of the accident, none of the injuries are being reported as serious or life threatening, as noted by an ISP District Chicago master sergeant.

At this time, no arrests have been made in relation to the accident, however, police are in the process of determining if alcohol was a factor.

Anybody involved in an auto accident, especially one with a drunk driver causing the injuries, should feel comfortable contacting an attorney to discuss his or her legal rights. This will allow you to hire an experienced lawyer who is well versed in the challenges associated with filing this type of law suit and recovering compensation for the injured.
