Chicago, IL - Victim Hospitalized After Three-Car Wreck on Kennedy Expy Near Fullerton

Chicago, IL (May 15, 2023) – The Kennedy Expressway was shut down for a short time on Sunday morning, May 14, after a multi-vehicle accident left at least one person hospitalized.

The accident happened on Sunday morning at about 7:00 a.m. in the southbound freeway lanes near Fullerton, as reported by troopers with the Illinois State Police.

There were at least three vehicles involved, and the road was completely blocked while the accident debris was cleaned up.

Police said that one individual was taken to the hospital with moderate injuries as other victims were assessed and evaluated at the scene.

There is currently no additional information about the accident, but ISP troopers say an active investigation remains ongoing.

The injured victims and their families remain in our thoughts at this time.

Multi-Vehicle Wrecks in Chicago

According to the latest numbers, each year, there are around 95,000 vehicle accidents in the state of Illinois. Over 920 distinct incidents claimed the lives of approximately 1,010 people. Most fatal automobile accidents include one or more of the following factors: intoxicated drivers, collisions with fixed objects, and excessive speed.

In Cook County, many accidents resulting in death or severe injury occur on or near major thoroughfares. More than a quarter of all traffic incidents in the state of Illinois occur in and around the greater Chicago metropolitan region, according to recently published statistics.

When an accident occurs, the victim is often forced to pay the price for the other motorist’s carelessness. The exorbitant price of treatment adds emotional and financial stress to the patient’s already difficult situation.

The emotional distress brought on by the catastrophe or the unjustifiable death of a loved one may also be paid for. If you were harmed in a car accident that was not your fault, you should not hesitate to contact a Chicago auto accident attorney.

If you’ve been hurt in a car crash that was someone else’s fault, you may sue that person and their insurance company for damages in Illinois. After a car accident in Illinois, everyone involved should not think twice about seeing an attorney.

  • "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.
