Chicago, IL - Injuries Reported in Multi-Vehicle Accident on I-80 at Rte 70 & Marseilles

Chicago, IL (June 7, 2022) – A multi-vehicle crash happened in the greater Chicago region on Tuesday evening, June 7, according to local authorities.

According to Chicago Police, the driver of a passenger car was traveling westbound on Interstate 80 between Route 70 and the Marseilles Interchange when they collided with another vehicle. The collision occurred at 6:55 p.m., and both drivers were in the right lanes.

Two people were hurt, but their current conditions were not released. They suffered minor to severe injuries that were not life-threatening. Traffic was backed up beyond Exit 92 as the CPD worked the area.

According to authorities, no charges are currently pending in connection with the event. However, the investigation is still underway.

We’re thinking about the injured victims of the disaster and wishing for a full recovery for everyone involved.

Injuries Caused by Motor Vehicle Accidents in Chicago

The Federal Highway Administration (FHA) records almost 2.5 million accidents each year at busy or jammed intersections, as well as major highways and interstates. The bulk of these accidents is caused by inattentive or left-turning drivers. According to statistics, these crossings cause more than 45% of all automobile accidents in the United States.

Unfortunately, traffic accidents are common in Cook County, with many of them occurring at busy junctions. According to state officials, one-quarter of all vehicle accidents in Illinois occur in and around the Chicago metropolitan region.

When individuals are hurt as a result of someone else’s carelessness, it is they and their families that bear the brunt of the consequences. This is true regardless of how the accident occurred. Victims must endure excruciating psychological suffering, substantial medical bills, and financial difficulties.

If you were injured in one of these incidents or lost a loved one as a consequence of one of these occurrences, you may be able to pursue a number of legal options. After being engaged in an incident that was not your fault, you should contact a car accident attorney in Chicago as soon as possible.

  • "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.
