Chicago, IL - Five Hurt in Multi-Vehicle Crash at I-94 & 81st St

Chicago, IL (February 14, 2023) – A multi-vehicle pileup in Chicago on Sunday, February 12, left five people with injuries. 

The incident was reported on Interstate 95 near 81st Street at around 1:10 a.m. and involved four vehicles. According to local sources, a northbound driver rear-ended another vehicle, and this caused a chain-reaction accident involving two other vehicles. Five occupants were hospitalized for treatment of sustained injuries. 

The driver of the first vehicle was reportedly arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. No additional information has been revealed at this time. 

An ongoing investigation into the cause of the crash is in progress. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

  • "Excellent Law Firm!"

    I cannot recommend D&W Law Group enough. From the moment I met the team, I felt confident that I was in good hands. They kept in touch with me every step of the way. My attorneys fought the insurance company, and we settled my case without having to go to court. Excellent law firm!

  • "Great Settlement"

    When I had my accident, the insurance company dragged its feet. I tried to handle the case on my own. I am so glad I decided to hire D&W Law Group. They kept my case moving, and I was awarded a great settlement. I hope I never need an attorney again, but if I do I will call them.
