Motor vehicle accidents: Interstate crash injures 2, kills 1

With the average rate of speed at which most vehicles travel on the interstate, it can take little more than a moment for a potential hazard to turn into a disaster. Motor vehicle accidents that take place under similar circumstances can be catastrophic incidents that could leave those involved with life-altering or even fatal injuries. A recent collision that took place on an interstate in Illinois has left two individuals with severe injuries and claimed the life of a 62-year-old man.

Law enforcement agents say they responded to reports of the crash just after 10 a.m. on a recent Saturday. Initial investigations indicate the incident took place after the driver of a northbound vehicle suddenly lost control and veered across the median. The vehicle proceeded to enter the opposite lanes of traffic before colliding head-on with a southbound pickup truck.

According to reports, the driver of the first vehicle passed away at the scene of the crash, while a passenger in the vehicle was airlifted to a medical facility for treatment. The driver of the truck suffered severe injuries and was also transported to a hospital before being rushed to another facility for additional care. Many of the details as to what might have caused the driver of the first vehicle to veer into oncoming lanes remain unclear.

Individuals who suffer serious harm in motor vehicle accidents may encounter a variety of challenges in life, physical and financial alike. If another party is deemed at fault in the crash, a person in Illinois could choose to seek legal counsel for guidance on the available options with which to seek restitution. By seeking advice early on, a person could gain much needed insight in preparing to pursue the full amount of restitution to which he or she is entitled to receive.
