Intersections are notoriously known for being the scene of serious accidents. A car accident recently took place at an intersection in Illinois and resulted in a fatality. Reports stated that a van was traveling west toward the intersection when a second van traveling the opposite direction tried to make a left turn. The two vans collided at the intersection, and the two vehicles then struck a third vehicle that had been stopped.
The incident caused all three drivers to suffer injuries and be taken from the scene. Additionally, a passenger in the turning van was seriously injured, and she succumbed to her injuries at the the hospital. It was reported that she was 71 years old. It was unclear what injuries the drivers involved in the crash may have suffered.
Further information about the crash was not reported other than to state that it took place around 7 p.m. The incident is likely still under investigation by authorities. At the time of the report, it was not mentioned whether any charges had been filed or will be filed. As the investigation continues, additional information about the accident may be disclosed.
It is unfortunate that this car accident resulted in the death of an individual. That person’s family will likely want to find out as much as they can about the incident and determine whether there may be cause to pursue legal action. Filing a wrongful death claim against the driver considered at fault could allow the family to seek compensation for damages permitted under Illinois law.
