According to official records, around 67,000 vehicle accidents occurred in Illinois, resulting in at least 94,000 injuries. In addition, over 975 individuals were killed as a result of 955 tragic events. The bulk of deadly accidents was caused by cars colliding with immovable objects, inebriated or drugged drivers, and excessive speed, according to officials.
These and other types of traffic events are unfortunately all too common in and around Cook County, with the bulk happening at heavily used intersections. And according to the most recent state data, over one-fourth of all vehicle accidents in Illinois occur in the metropolitan region of Chicago.
