Where your injury case is all that matters

Car destroyed, 2 hurt in Illinois truck accident

The Illinois State Police were called about an accident involving a semi-truck and a passenger car on the last Saturday in November. The crash happened at about 5:25 in the morning. The accident was in Saline County, at the intersection where Mt. Moriah Road and Harco Road come together.

Pictures from the scene show a small black car that has been involved in what appears to be a head-on collision. The front end of the car is crushed back so that it folds up into the air, and the windows appear to be smashed out. There are car parts and glass scattered all down the side of the road; the wreckage is sitting up against the metal guardrail. More debris lies on the far side of that rail.

Officers closed down Harco Road while they were carrying out an investigation, and it stayed closed all the way until the early afternoon.

The two people in the car miraculously lived through the crash, but they were both injured. They also had to be extricated from the wreckage. After getting them out, the emergency crews took them to an Air Evac helicopter, and that helicopter transported them to a hospital in Evansville, Indiana.

As of this time, the police have not given out details regarding the identities of those involved, what caused the wreck or the severity of their injuries.

After truck accidents, those who have been seriously hurt could be facing medical expenses that they cannot afford to pay off on their own, and it is important for all people to know what rights they have to financial compensation.

  1. "Committed To My Cause"

    I was struck by a car while cycling and severely, almost fatally injured. A team of excellent medical professionals performed complicated and extensive surgical and medical procedures as part of a successful effort to restore my health....

  2. "Could not have made a better choice"

    We found Mark [Mathys] through the web after an auto accident in October 2011. While selecting someone you don't know to represent you can be a gamble, we could not have made a better choice....
    - Dave

  3. "Very satisfied"

    Mark [Mathys] is very professional. He responds almost immediately, via email, to any question, comment or concern I have and if he is not able to respond right away, he will let me know. I have been very satisfied with Mark so far and I am happy to be his client.

  4. "Easy to talk to"

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to. Prior to working with them, my wife and I had no real experience with the legal system beyond a house closing, yet Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid explained the whole process to us very well. I knew that whenever I had a concern about our case or the legal system in general I could call their office or send an email and receive answers the same day... -Larry

  5. "Provided very wise advice"

    I've dealt with attorneys on a variety of issues, almost all of them since leaving college and entering the workplace. Mr. Mathys was the first attorney I had any real experience with, and I was impressed then and remain so. He provided very wise advice and always kept me informed. In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.
    - Tyler D.

  6. "In-depth knowledge of the law"

    Mark [Schneid] is an excellent and skilled attorney and demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the law when he helped settle my dog bite lawsuit resulting from a traumatic incident. He explained what was needed of me and how I should handle the situation in a professional manner.
    - Karen K.

  7. "They went to bat for me"

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection. After I called Mathys & Schneid, even though I didn't have a very large case, they made me feel like I was one of their most important cases. They went to bat for me with the trucking company's insurance and got me a settlement. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. -Dan H.
