Illinois man sentenced to 42 months for fatal accident

When a loved one’s life is cut short due to the negligence of another, it is only natural to want to see justice done. But even when justice is done, it doesn’t do anything to bring that loved one back. Sometimes lives are completely ruined, both mentally and financially. Restitution or compensation can, however, help with the financial part of a loss, and sometimes that is enough to help a family move on.

Bolingbrook, Illinois, car accident caused by wrong-way driver

Illinois State Police have arrested a woman for DUI after she allegedly drove her SUV onto the highway while traveling the wrong way. The accident happened in Bolingbrook, Illinois, on June 27. According to police, the 24-year-old woman was under the influence when she took her red Ford Explorer onto I-55, just south of Route 53 at around 2:00 a.m. Police say the woman was heading in a southerly direction while in the northbound lane of that highway.

Alcohol, BAC And Car Accidents

Laws concerning driving under the influence of alcohol have evolved substantially over the years. Significant pressure from the federal government was required to compel all 50 states to adopt a blood alcohol content level of .08 as the legal limit for DUI. Recently, the National Transportation Safety Board recommended that the states change the limit to .05 BAC. A recent study suggests that even that change may not be enough. According to researchers at the University of California, San Diego, even very small amounts of alcohol increase the chances of a collision. The study showed that drivers at a .01 BAC were more likely to get into an accident than sober drivers.
