Chicago, IL – Injuries Occur in Multi-Car Accident on I-290 Inbound at Byrne Int

Chicago, IL - Injuries Occur in Multi-Car Accident on I-290 Inbound at Byrne Int

Chicago, IL (August 20, 2022) – On Saturday night, August 20, two vehicles collided on a major highway in the Chicago region. Due to this, there was a large mobilization of police cars and emergency personnel in the Chicago area.

At 11:30 p.m., the Chicago Police Department officers were dispatched to the Interstate 290/Eisenhower Inbound area. Right lanes are restricted near the Byrne Interchange due to an accident involving two vehicles. At least one patient was reportedly transported by ambulance to a hospital in the Chicago region.

Despite this, investigators continue to dig into the case, but no new information is available. On the other hand, the CPD has requested that anyone with potentially useful information get in touch.

The victims of today’s multiple-vehicle accident have our deepest sympathies, and we pray for a speedy and complete recovery for all of them.

Major Accidents & Injuries in the Chicago Area

Traffic accident studies estimate that there were roughly 97,000 car incidents in Illinois in 2013. The number of deaths from these over 910 incidents is over 1,025. The three leading causes of deadly car accidents are drunk driving, hitting a stationary object, and high speeds.

Cook County’s most dangerous intersections and multi-lane highways account for the lion’s share of fatalities and severe injuries in the region. According to newly released data, more than a quarter of all traffic accidents in the state of Illinois occur in and around the greater Chicago metropolitan area.

  • "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.
