Chicago, IL – I-57 Car Accident Near I-94 Dan Ryan Injures Victims

Chicago, IL - I-57 Car Accident Near I-94 Dan Ryan Injures Victims

Chicago, IL (April 6, 2023) – At least one person was seriously hurt in a crash that occurred on I-94 in the Chicago area in the early morning of Thursday, April 6.

Right around 4:00 a.m., an accident completely closed several right lanes on I-57 southbound at the I-94 Dan Ryan exit. Officials added that a handful of people were hurt as a result of the incident, which appears to involve two to three drivers. However, the current status and condition of the person(s) who were taken to the hospital by EMTs in Chicago are unknown at this time.

The accident caused around two hours of delays in traffic. Authorities from the Chicago Police Department cleaned up the scene and cleared the wreckage later that morning while an investigation continued.

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

Serious Vehicle Accidents Across Illinois

Statistics from the state of Illinois show that well over 90,000 people were injured or lost their lives in automobile accidents each year. More than a thousand terrible events resulted in the deaths of around 950 people. Authorities report that speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and collisions with fixed objects are the top causes of fatal car accidents.

It’s no surprise that most car accidents in and around Cook County take place near busy thoroughfares. According to the most recently available state data, more than a quarter of all auto accidents in Illinois happen in the Chicago metropolitan region.

People hurt in road accidents that might have been avoided must pay the price for the carelessness of others. That holds true no matter what the outcome of the conversation is. Patients have to deal with the stress and suffering of mental anguish in addition to rising medical costs, horrible physical injuries, and other financial concerns.

  • "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.
