Chicago, IL - Ten Hospitalized After School Bus Accident on I-88 Near York Rd

Chicago, IL (December 13, 2022) – On Monday morning, Illinois State Police reported that a multi-vehicle collision involving a school bus in DuPage County resulted in the transport of ten individuals to hospitals.

At around 8:15 a.m., state troopers responded to westbound Interstate 88 at York Road and Oak Brook for an accident involving at least two automobiles and an occupied school bus.

According to authorities, ten victims total were sent to nearby hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. One child and two adults, who were riding on the bus at the time of the wreck, were also sent to area hospitals.

At around 8:20 a.m., the left lane of westbound I-88 at York Road was blocked for the investigation, with traffic using the right lanes.

The police did not immediately release details on the cause of the collision and said their investigation is continuing at this time.

Our thoughts are with the injured individuals and their families. We hope for their complete recovery.

Bus Accidents in Illinois

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration data indicate that over eighty school buses, fifteen municipal buses, and seventy-five transit buses were involved in fatal car incidents in 2019. Especially in urban regions such as the Chicagoland area, transit bus accidents remain common. Every day, at least one Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) bus is involved in an accident, according to the most current investigation by Illinois officials.

When a bus accident occurs, it is not unusual for there to be a significant number of claimants, each of whom may have suffered distinct injuries requiring varying degrees of medical care. Moreover, the sheer size and strength of a bus increase the likelihood that victims of these incidents would receive a number of severe injuries, including but not limited to severe whiplash, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and more.

Nonetheless, in the aftermath of an accident, you may have several legal options available to you. If you were injured in a car accident that was not your fault, you should contact a Chicago injury accident attorney as soon as possible following the occurrence.

  • "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.
