Chicago, IL – Six Hurt in Hit-and-Run Crash on N Wabash Ave

Chicago, IL - Six Hurt in Hit-and-Run Crash on N Wabash Ave

Chicago, IL (January 22, 2023) — On Saturday, six individuals, including four pedestrians, were hurt in a major hit-and-run accident in River North.

Just after 7:45 p.m., the collision occurred in the 600 block of North Wabash Avenue, according to police.

A male motorist hit a westbound Toyota Prius in a black 2012 Chevy sedan as it was moving through traffic. Per authorities, the Chevy sedan then ran over four people who were crossing the street at a corner.

A 26-year-old woman was sent in serious condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. A 30-year-old male and a 28-year-old woman were brought to the same hospital in fair condition.

Another 30-year-old man, the fourth pedestrian, was taken to Stroger Hospital in good condition. According to authorities, the 30-year-old male driver and the 30-year-old female passenger of the Prius were also brought to the hospital in good condition.

Meanwhile, a woman and two males traveling in a Chevy left the scene and are not yet in custody.

The Major Accidents team is conducting an investigation and has not yet offered any more details.

All injured victims are in our thoughts, and we wish them a speedy recovery.

Chicago-area Hit-and-Run Auto Accidents

Even more deadly road accidents are caused by hit-and-run incidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, even though they only make up 4% of total vehicle accidents. These mishaps contributed to a third of all collision fatalities in 2018, which resulted in the deaths of over 11,000 passengers in cars.

Even while any accident might risk the safety of everyone involved, these collisions are among the most hazardous on our roads. It’s quite likely that victims may suffer serious injuries or perhaps pass away in these occurrences.

The personal injury attorneys at our Chicago law company are aware of how distressing these events can be for anybody inside a moving car. This is why we work so hard to support each client’s recovery.

A number of factors, including negligent driving mistakes and defective vehicle parts, may bring on these collisions. However, these accidents have catastrophic impacts on the victims no matter what their cause. People who are hurt must cope with lost wages, expensive medical bills, and considerable property damage. Contact an Illinois automobile accident attorney to protect your legal rights if you were hurt in a vehicle rollover caused by someone else’s carelessness.

If you did not cause the occurrence, our legal team feels that you should not be held liable for any expenses associated with it.

Speak with a lawyer straight away if you were wounded in an automobile accident that wasn’t your fault.

  • "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.
