Chiropractor killed in 4-car crash on Route 120

A chiropractor from Hainesville has passed away after a four-car crash that took place out on Route 120. She was just 54 years old.

The accident happened on a Friday night at about 11 in the evening. The woman was close to Battershall Road, going west on Route 120, when another vehicle allegedly ran into her in a head-on crash. The impact was so violent that the woman was trapped in her vehicle.

The emergency crews were eventually able to get her out, and they took her to Advocate Condell Medical Center, which is located in Libertyville. However, at 23 minutes after midnight, the medical professionals announced that she had passed away from her injuries.

The initial crash apparently started a chain reaction that drew in two other vehicles, but their involvement appears to be much more minor, as no one else was seriously injured. The police have also not revealed the cause of the accident at this time, though the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team is still carrying out their investigation, so more details will be available when that has concluded.

Those who knew the woman remembered her fondly, saying she was kind and enjoyed being involved with the local community.

Interestingly, this accident happened right near the scene of another multi-car crash that took one life last year. That accident happened near Mill Road, and it involved a dump truck and a landscaping truck.

If you have lost a loved one in a car accident in Illinois, you must know what rights you may have to compensation and how the results of the police investigation can impact your case.
