It was recently reported that a crash in Illinois resulted in serious injuries to two individuals after a motorcycle was struck by a vehicle. Reports stated that the motorcycle accident took place at approximately 3:30 p.m. when a car was traveling north and the motorcycle was traveling south. The car driver collided with the motorcycle, which was carrying two individuals. The driver was the only occupant of the car.
The motorcyclists were both seriously injured in the incident. One of the individuals was flown from the scene to a hospital for treatment while the second individual was transported by ambulance to the hospital. Additional information on the individuals and their conditions was not given in the report. The car driver did not suffer any injuries.
It was reported that the driver of the car was a 45-year-old woman, and she did not have a valid driver’s license. As a result, she was taken into custody, but she has been released on bond with a pending court date. At the time of the report, the car crash was still under investigation.
The individuals seriously injured in this Illinois motorcycle accident may feel some sense of relief for being alive. However, their injuries may cause them considerable pain and suffering as well as financial struggles due to medical bills. As a result, they may wish to consider filing personal injury claims against the driver considered at fault. A successful claim could allow them to be awarded compensation for damages that resulted from the accident.
