3 injured in a car accident involving a Metra train

When you get into someone's vehicle, you likely don't think that you will be injured in an accident. Unfortunately, accidents do sometimes occur. These accidents can lead to minor or severe injuries. Chicago residents might like to know about a car accident that involved a Metra train.

The driver of a small red car is said to have accidentally turned onto the train tracks in front of an oncoming train. The driver and two passengers were injured in the car accident. While the injures were said to be not life-threatening, all three victims were transported to area hospitals. One person was taken to Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights. The other two were taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. According to police, the driver of the car was cited for code violations.

No one on the train was injured, but the No. 115 train heading toward Antioch was delayed approximately 75 minutes because of the accident.

That wasn't the only accident on that specific line on Dec. 20, 2013. Earlier in the day, a juvenile was struck by a train near Buffalo Grove. That accident is said to likely have been a suicide attempt. The victim was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.

If you have been injured in a car accident, you might be entitled to compensation to help cover costs associated with your medical care and the aftermath of the accident. An experienced Illinois personal injury attorney can help you determine if you can seek compensation for medical bills, drug costs, doctor's visits or pain and suffering.
