Potential street racing causes high-speed crash

Though the investigation is ongoing, the police are looking into a wreck in Park Ridge to see if one of the vehicles was speeding because it was involved in an illegal street race. They can't say for sure yet, but it is the initial thought from the department. They have said that no one involved was on drugs or using alcohol.

According to law enforcement, an SUV with at least two passengers inside was speeding dramatically right before the crash. They say that an Audi then pulled out in front of the SUV, with a 24-year-old woman behind the wheel, and the SUV slammed into it.

The SUV allegedly careened on after hitting the Audi, flipping and rolling. It then reportedly struck a light pole and it also ran into a tree. During all of this, two passengers were flung from the vehicle. The wreck happened near the point where Cumberland and Devon come together in an intersection.

Everyone involved was injured, though the driver of the Audi only had minor injuries, as did the SUV's driver. The passengers in the SUV were not as fortunate. A young woman had numerous fractures. A young man was in serious condition, with swelling on his brain, needing emergency surgery. Those two, along with the SUV driver, were treated at Lutheran General Hospital after being taken there by emergency crews.

This case shows just how quickly an accident can happen, due to one simple decision on the road. If you've been injured in a crash, look into the rights that you may have to financial compensation, especially if you have significant medical bills.

  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....

  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.

    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.
