Chicago, IL – Woman in Critical Condition After Hit-and-Run Crash on Princeton Ave

Chicago, IL - Woman in Critical Condition After Hit-and-Run Crash on Princeton Ave

Chicago, IL (July 6, 2022) – One victim was badly injured in a hit-and-run incident in the West Pullman area on Monday morning, July 4.

The 27-year-old woman was traveling in the 11900 block of South Princeton Avenue at around 12:35 a.m. when a sedan, described only as dark-colored, hit her SUV head-on, according to Chicago Police Department officers.

The woman suffered major injuries and trauma and was evacuated by EMS to Advocate Christ Medical Center. Officials noted that she was in critical condition at the hospital.

The sedan’s male driver escaped the scene on foot, and no suspect is presently in custody while Area Two police conduct an investigation. Anyone who saw the crash is requested to call Area Two or the CPD right away.

Our thoughts and best wishes are with the wounded woman and her family. We wish her a full recovery.

Injuries in Chicago-area Hit-Skip Accidents

The incidence of hit-and-run crashes in Chicago has grown in the past year, according to traffic studies and an examination of the city’s statistics data on vehicle accidents. In fact, when compared to the preceding four years, authorities reported the highest number of accidents, deaths, and incapacitating injuries in 2021.

Approximately 130,530 of the total 439,680 accidents documented by Chicago Police Department officers over this four-year period were hit-and-runs. Furthermore, according to new data from Chicagoland authorities, roughly 36,300 hit-and-run events occurred in 2021 alone, an average of almost 100 per day and a 17% increase over the 30,690 that occurred the previous year. In point of fact, over 32,100 hit-and-run incidents occurred in the previous 12 months, with 31,400 recorded the year before.

In June 2021, officials reported the highest number of hit-and-run incidents in the preceding four years at more than 3,560.

Regardless of the source of an accident, victims and their families face the burden when they are injured as a result of the negligence of others. Those impacted by these disastrous situations may feel helpless in the face of intense emotional suffering and exorbitant medical bills.

  • "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.
