Chicago, IL – Multiple Drivers Collide on I-90/94 at 43rd St, Causing Injuries

Chicago, IL - Multiple Drivers Collide on I-90/94 at 43rd St, Causing Injuries

Chicago, IL (May 6, 2023) – On Saturday morning, May 6, a multi-vehicle collision on I-90/94 in the Chicagoland region caused at least one serious injury.

At around 5:20 a.m., several lanes on I-90/94 Dan Ryan Outbound at the 43rd Street exit were fully blocked due to an accident. At least one individual was transported to a nearby hospital by EMTs in Chicago; however, their present status and condition at the medical center remain unavailable.

After the collision, traffic backed up for about two hours. Though the investigation is still ongoing, the Chicago Police Department authorities cleaned the area and removed the debris by late morning.

The injured accident victims are in our thoughts, and we wish them a full recovery.

Injury Car Wrecks in Chicago

According to official figures, more than 96,000 people were injured or killed in vehicle accidents in Illinois last year. And per experts, collisions with fixed objects, intoxicated driving, and high speeds are all major factors in these tragic incidents.

The majority of car accidents in and around Cook County occur at high-traffic crossroads and on major thoroughfares. In fact, the greater Chicago region accounts for more than a quarter of all auto accidents in Illinois, according to the most current available state figures.

People who suffer injuries in road accidents often have to bear the costs of others’ irresponsibility. Patients have to deal with the stress and suffering of trauma and mental pain in addition to rising medical costs, horrible physical injuries, and other financial concerns.

  • "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.
