Chicago, IL – Injuries Occur in Car Accident on I-90 Kennedy at Cumberland Ave

Chicago, IL - Injuries Occur in Car Accident on I-90 Kennedy at Cumberland Ave

Chicago, IL (April 13, 2023) – Officials say that at least one person may have been hurt in a vehicle collision that took place on Interstate 90 in the greater Chicago area on Thursday afternoon, April 13.

A serious accident occurred on I-90 Kennedy Outbound at Cumberland Avenue around 12:25 p.m. At least one victim was taken to the hospital by Chicago EMS, but the status and condition of that victim are not yet known.

By late afternoon, the Chicago Police Department had finished clearing the area. However, CPD officers noted that their investigation remains active, and no new information has been released in the meantime.

Our thoughts go out to the injured victims and their families. We wish them a full recovery.

Motor Vehicle Crashes in Chicago

Based on data collected over five years by local traffic authorities, every six minutes, ten times an hour, or 240 times a day, an automobile accident occurs in the greater Chicago area. When scaled at the statewide level, officials reported that Illinois saw well over 319,000 vehicle accidents in one recent year alone. Unsurprisingly, GPS data indicates that Chicago ranks 149th in terms of the worst traffic worldwide.

Moreover, according to the latest data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, traffic-related fatality rates are at their highest point in the last two decades. The organization projects that over 9,500 persons lost their lives in car accidents during the first three months of 2022, an increase of more than 6% compared to the same time in 2021. And per Chicago’s open data site, at least 35 of these fatalities occurred in the city itself.

  • "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.
