Chicago, IL (June 23, 2022) – Local officials report that a multiple-vehicle collision happened in the broader Chicago metropolitan region on Thursday evening, June 23.

Local sources and preliminary Chicago Police Department officer reports indicate that two vehicles collided on I-190/Kennedy Inbound at the Tri-State Tollway/I-294, obstructing the bulk of the lanes on the highway. At 9:00 p.m., when the incident happened, both vehicles were merging between the right lanes.

  • "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.
