Motor vehicle accidents: 6 injured, 1 killed in recent collision

When a driver loses control of a vehicle and crosses into oncoming traffic, other drivers nearby may be left scrambling to react and steer out of its path. In some cases, maneuvering away from a vehicle that suddenly emerges from the opposite lane could prove difficult at best, and motor vehicle accidents stemming from such negligence could place the safety of everyone nearby at risk. One person was killed and several others suffered severe injuries during a recent car accident that took place after a vehicle drifted across the median in Illinois.

Authorities say they received reports of the incident just before 1 p.m. on a recent Tuesday. They say the accident occurred when, for reasons unknown, the driver of an eastbound truck suddenly lost control and veered across the median. Upon entering oncoming lanes, the truck proceeded to side-swipe a car before colliding head-on with a third vehicle.

Police have advised that the driver of the truck was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries, but they say he passed away at the facility later on. They also state that up to six other individuals all suffered injuries in the incident. Although an investigation is underway to determine what might have caused the driver of the truck to cross into oncoming lanes, no further details were provided.

Those who suffer severe harm in a motor vehicle accidents may face a variety of challenges in life, physical and financial alike. If another party is deemed at fault in the crash, a person could choose to consult with an attorney for guidance on his or her available legal avenues. An attorney in Illinois can evaluate the incident and help a client better prepare to pursue the full amount of restitution entitled through a personal injury claim.
