Chicago, IL – Man Dies in Two-Vehicle Collision on N Cicero Ave

Chicago, IL - Man Dies in Two-Vehicle Collision on N Cicero Ave

Chicago, IL (March 8, 2023) – Authorities are investigating the cause of a fatal two-vehicle collision on the West Side of the city early Wednesday morning, March 8.

On Wednesday at about 2:30 a.m., the collision occurred in the 1000 block of North Cicero Avenue. The back of an Acura MDX was reportedly struck by a white Chevrolet Traverse traveling north on Cicero near Cortez, causing it to catch fire.

The male Acura driver was declared dead at the site of the accident.

According to police, the male driver of the Chevrolet was brought to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition and will be issued a citation.

An investigation has since been launched and is currently continuing. Officers with the Chicago Police Department are handling the probe.

Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim. Our thoughts are with the injured victim in hopes of their full recovery.

Car Accidents in the Greater Chicago Area

In 2013, there were around 97,000 auto incidents involving Illinois drivers, according to the state’s collision statistics. There have been over 1,025 fatalities as a consequence of these over 910 events. Drunk driving, striking an immovable object, and excessive speed are the three major causes of fatal automobile accidents.

In Cook County, the majority of deaths and serious injuries occur at high-volume crossings and on four- and six-lane motorways. According to previously released figures, more than a quarter of all traffic accidents in Illinois occur in the Chicago metropolitan region.

Unfortunately, the victims of vehicle accidents are sometimes forced to pay for the carelessness of others. People often only consider the immediate physical ramifications of such an event, ignoring the long-term psychological and financial consequences. But thankfully, those who have suffered emotionally due to an accident may also submit a claim for compensation. If you were not responsible for the vehicle accident that caused you to suffer injuries, you should contact a Chicago attorney immediately.

Under Illinois law, if another motorist caused an accident that left you wounded, you have the authority to hold them financially accountable. If you have been involved in an automobile accident in Illinois, you should immediately contact a local attorney. Without legal counsel, it may be difficult to negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company representing the negligent motorist.

  • "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.
