Chicago, IL – Two-Vehicle Crash, Injuries on I-80 at Harlem Ave & Maple Rd

Chicago, IL - Two-Vehicle Crash, Injuries on I-80 at Harlem Ave & Maple Rd

Chicago, IL (August 16, 2022) – Two vehicles collided on a major Chicago area highway on Tuesday night, August 16. This prompted the deployment of many law enforcement vehicles and Chicagoland first responders.

The Chicago Police Department was sent to eastbound I-80 at 10:25 p.m. There was an accident between two cars in the right lanes of the road between Harlem Avenue and Maple Road, causing them to be closed. According to reports, emergency personnel rushed one patient to a hospital in the Chicago area.

In spite of this, officials are still looking into the matter, but thus far, they have found nothing new. The CPD, on the other hand, has asked that anybody who may have relevant information get in touch.

We sincerely offer our sincere condolences to the victims of today’s multiple-vehicle collision and hope for their full recovery.

Accident and Injury Reports From the Chicago Metropolitan Area

In 2013, there were about 97,000 automobile events in Illinois, according to analyses of traffic accidents. More than 910 events resulted in over 1,025 fatalities. Drunk driving, hitting a stationary object, and excessive speeding are the three most common causes of fatal car accidents.

It has been shown that the greatest deaths and serious injuries take place at the most hazardous junctions in Cook County. According to recently released data, the greater Chicago metropolitan region is responsible for more than a quarter of all traffic accidents in the state of Illinois.

Those who are hurt in auto accidents often have to bear the costs associated with another person’s carelessness. Injuries to the body may have a significant psychological and economic impact, both of which are often disregarded.

Victims may also seek compensation for the emotional distress they’ve endured as a result of the tragedy. Contact a Chicago automobile accident attorney without delay if you were not at fault for the crash.

  • "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.
