Chicago, IL – Injuries Occur in Car Wreck on I-94 Inbound at Cottage Grove Ave

Chicago, IL - Injuries Occur in Car Wreck on I-94 Inbound at Cottage Grove Ave

Chicago, IL (August 13, 2022) – Several law enforcement units were sent out on Saturday night, August 13, after two automobiles collided on a major multi-lane highway in the Chicago region.

The Chicago Police Department was called to the I-94 Inbound and Cottage Grove Avenue area at around 5:40 p.m., and officers responded shortly after. Two cars collided in the left three lanes, producing severe congestion that eventually led to the closure of the whole roadway. Near the broader Chicago metropolitan area, emergency medical services purportedly sent one patient to a hospital.

Despite this, officials are still looking into the incident, but they have found nothing new thus yet. In any case, anybody who may have relevant information was asked to get in touch with the CPD.

Our thoughts and well wishes are with today’s multi-vehicle collision victims.

  • "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.
