Chicago, IL - One Fatality, Two Injuries Reported in I-94 Car Accident at 159th St

Chicago, IL (February 19, 2023) – An early Sunday morning collision on Interstate 94 has resulted in one fatality and two injuries, according to officers with the Chicago Police Department.

At around 3:20 a.m., a collision occurred in the southbound lanes of 159th Street in South Holland.

ISP reports that one driver struck a guardrail after a separate accident. According to preliminary reports from the Illinois State Police, a man was discovered in the left lane and declared deceased at the scene.

Two passengers in the car were sent to a local hospital. A woman was sent with injuries that were not life-threatening, while a male was transported with life-threatening injuries.

The ages of the victims cannot be determined.

No more information was available, but police asked anybody who witnessed or had information about the occurrence to contact the ISP. An investigation remains active at this time.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the deceased victim’s family. Our thoughts are extended to the injured victims and their families in hopes of their complete recovery.

Chicagoland Traffic Accidents

Approximately 90,000 or more people were killed or injured in motor vehicle accidents in Illinois in 2017. There were probably a thousand of these instances, and as a consequence, perhaps 970 individuals died. According to studies, driving under the influence, excessive speed, and collisions with immovable objects are the three major causes of death in automobile accidents.

The bulk of traffic collisions in Cook County and the surrounding area occur at intersections. According to statistics from the most recent year, more than a quarter of all auto accidents in Illinois occur in the Chicago metropolitan region.

  • "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.
