Crystal Lake, IL – Two Hospitalized After SUV Crashes into House on Heather Dr

Crystal Lake, IL - Two Hospitalized After SUV Crashes into House on Heather Dr

Crystal Lake, IL (July 28, 2022) – On Wednesday night, July 27, a major accident occurred in the Crystal Lake neighborhood, just outside of Chicago, when an SUV crashed through a home’s garage and became wedged within.

Police in Crystal Lake said that both the driver of the SUV and a person inside the residence had life-threatening injuries. They were transported to area hospitals by helicopter at around 7:00 a.m. from a residence on Heather Drive.

According to the police, it is unknown why the SUV driver veered off the road and struck the home. The Crystal Lake Fire and Rescue Department had to be extricated from the accident.

The blue SUV could be seen protruding from the residence, and the garage looks to have partly collapsed as a result of the collision. However, the inquiry is still underway, and no new information has been supplied.

We wish the victims a fast recovery and extend our sympathies.

Greater Chicago-area Automobile Crashes

According to data published by the state, there were more than 95,000 vehicle accidents in Illinois in 2013. Nearly 980 people perished as a direct consequence of over 900 catastrophic events. The leading causes of auto accidents that result in at least one death include head-on collisions with stationary objects, driving under the influence of alcohol, and driving at an unsafely high speed.

The bulk of traffic-related deaths and injuries in Cook County occur at or near busy junctions. Illinois has released new data revealing that more than a quarter of all traffic accidents occur in the greater Chicago metropolitan region.

Motor vehicle accident victims often bear the weight of others’ irresponsibility. Patients must also deal with the stress and anguish that accompany mental illness, in addition to growing medical expenses and other financial problems.

The victims of these injuries may also be entitled to compensation for their pain or perhaps death as a direct consequence of these injuries. If the collision was not your fault, you should contact a car accident attorney in Chicago as soon as possible.

If another driver’s carelessness or inattention caused your injuries in a vehicle accident in Illinois, you are entitled to compensation and justice. Plaintiffs should get legal counsel as quickly as possible after a vehicle accident in Illinois, since it may be difficult to obtain fair and full compensation from the other motorist or their insurance company without it.

  • "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.
