Chicago, IL - Several Hurt in Car Accident on I-290 at Austin Blvd

Chicago, IL (December 3, 2022) – According to reports, one individual was moderately injured in a car crash that took place on Saturday, December 3, in the Chicago metropolitan region.

A major collision occurred at 4:40 p.m. on I-290 Inbound near the exit for Austin Boulevard. Chicago emergency medical services sent at least one patient to the hospital, but that patient’s condition is still unclear.

There were almost two hours of delays as a result of the event. The Chicago Police Department had cleaned up the scene by late evening; however, their investigation is still underway.

Our thoughts go out to the injured victims in hopes of their complete recovery.

  • "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.
