Kane County Car Crash Causes Death of 5 Year-Old Child and Injuries to Others

A deadly car crash near Pingree Grove, Illinois claimed the life of a 5 year-old girl and seriously injured three others. The crash occurred on February 20, 2015 on Route 72, near Big Timber Road, when a 17 year-old driver headed eastbound on Route 72 lost control of his Mercedes sedan when approaching a curve in the road.

The young girl, Gabrielle Horvath, was a back seat passenger traveling westbound on Route 72 with her father when a Mercedes sedan struck their Toyota FJ Cruiser head-on after the Mercedes crossed over into the oncoming lane. After the initial impact, a third car rear-ended the Horvath vehicle. Gabrielle and her father were both rushed to Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin, IL where Gabrielle was pronounced dead. The driver of the Mercedes, from Carpentersville, Illinois, was also taken to Sherman Hospital for his injuries.

The Carpentersville teen was cited for driving in the wrong lane, according to police. Authorities are still investigating to see if drugs, alcohol, or texting played a role in the crash.

If you, or anyone you know, were injured in a car accident, you should contact a personal injury attorney as quickly as possible to protect your interests. Your attorney will be able to help you recover compensation for your injuries from either the at-fault driver's insurance company or through your own insurance company through uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage.

  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.

In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.

  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.
