Chicago, IL – Two Men Dead, One Hospitalized After Rollover Crash on I-55 at Cicero Ave

Chicago, IL - Two Men Dead, One Hospitalized After Rollover Crash on I-55 at Cicero Ave

Chicago, IL (March 27, 2023) – Chicago fire officials reported that two victims were killed, and another person was critically hurt in a Monday evening accident on the Stevenson Expressway.

Fire officials added the wreck happened on the Inbound side of Interstate 55, close to the exit with Cicero Avenue. A van flipped along an embankment for unknown reasons, ejecting three people from the vehicle.

Two men, ages 26 and 30 years old, were found dead at the scene. A 42-year-old man was discovered with major injuries and was subsequently transferred to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition.

Officials did not immediately provide further information about the crash.

Our deepest condolences go out to the families of the deceased victims. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of their full recovery.

Chicago’s Rate of Deadly Accidents

Every year, hundreds of reports of accidents at junctions are filed with the Federal Highway Administration (FHA), with left-turning and inattentive driving being the most common contributing factors. Approximately 50% of all car accidents happen at intersections. These mishaps occur more frequently than others, especially rear-end collisions.

Most accidents in Cook County’s roadways happen at high-traffic intersections. State data shows that the greater Chicago area accounts for more than a quarter of all traffic accidents in Illinois.

No matter who or what caused the accident, the victims and their families are responsible for covering the associated costs. Those directly affected by these catastrophes may feel helpless in the face of the emotional and financial toll they must bear.

If you or a loved one suffered harm or died as a result of any of these, you may have legal recourse. If you were involved in a car accident in Chicago that wasn’t your fault, you should consult a lawyer straight once.

Illinois law guarantees victims financial recompense when another driver’s negligence or recklessness causes an accident. However, it is vital for accident victims to have competent legal representation, as it may be difficult to receive complete and reasonable financial recompense from drivers or their insurance companies.

  • "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.
