I-88 Car Crash Leaves One Dead, Injures Another

On Behalf of | Dec 18, 2017 | Car Accidents

On December 15, 2017, 4 vehicles were involved in a crash on eastbound I-88 just west of Route 47, near Sugar Grove. Illinois State Police determined that Samuel Gradman, a 19 year-old Northbrook man driving a 2003 Infiniti passenger car, failed to yield to construction equipment on the highway, causing him to strike a Ford pickup truck before losing control and crashing into two parked tollway maintenance trucks.

The Ford driver was identified as a 49 year-old man from Malta, Illinois, and was taken to Kishwaukee Hospital for treatment. Gradman died from his injuries after the crash. Police have not issued any charges and the matter still remains under investigation to see if Gradman was distracted at the time of the crash.

If you happen to be injured in a car crash, it’s important to have an experienced attorney protect you and preserve as much evidence as possible. Your attorney will be able to investigate the crash and determine if distracted driving played a role. If your crash was caused by distracted driving, the at-fault insurance company may be more likely to accept responsibility for your injuries.
