Chicago, IL – Four Hospitalized After Car Crashes into Culver’s on Dempster St

Chicago, IL - Four Hospitalized After Car Crashes into Culver's on Dempster St

Chicago, IL (December 5, 2022) – On Monday, December 5, a car crashed into a Culver’s restaurant in Morton Grove and injured several people.

At around 3:50 p.m., officers from Morton Grove responded to Culver’s, located at 7310 Dempster Street, for a complaint of a vehicle smashing into the structure.

According to authorities, a 2008 Toyota Sedan going westbound on Dempster Street exited the roadway and hit the structure. The vehicle entered the dining room and did extensive damage to the building.

Four diners inside the restaurant had minor injuries and were transferred to local hospitals. The Mount Prospect driver, a 79-year-old woman, was not hurt.

She received a citation for inappropriate lane use and a court date. However, an inquiry is ongoing, and no additional details have been provided.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time.

Multi-Vehicle Crashes in Greater Chicago

In 2013, there were more than 95,000 car accidents in Illinois, according to state statistics. Nearly 980 individuals died as a direct result of more than 900 accidents. The primary causes of fatal vehicle accidents include head-on collisions with immovable objects, driving under the influence of alcohol, and driving at an unsafely high rate of speed.

In Cook County, the majority of traffic-related fatalities and injuries occur at or near busy intersections. According to new statistics from Illinois, more than a quarter of all traffic accidents occur in the greater Chicago metropolitan area.

Victims of motor vehicle accidents often face the burden of others’ recklessness. Patients must also cope with the stress and misery caused by major injuries, rising medical bills, and other financial issues.

The victims may also be entitled to compensation for their suffering or death as a direct result of these injuries. If the crash was not your fault, you should immediately call a Chicago automobile accident attorney.

In Illinois, you are entitled to compensation and justice if another driver’s negligence or inattention caused your injuries in a collision. Plaintiffs should get legal representation following a car accident in Illinois as soon as possible since it may be difficult to collect adequate compensation from the other driver or their insurance company without representation.

  • "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.
