Gary, IL – Multi-Vehicle Accident, Injuries on I-80/94 at MLK Dr

Gary, IL - Multi-Vehicle Accident, Injuries on I-80/94 at MLK Dr

Gary, IL (May 29, 2022) – A multiple-vehicle accident took place in Gary, just outside of Chicago, on Sunday afternoon, May 29, according to local authorities.

Gary Police reported that the driver of a passenger vehicle was traveling in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 80/94 at the Martin Luther King Drive exit when they collided with another car, which appeared to be an SUV. Both vehicles were traveling in the right lanes when the incident took place.

Two people suffered mild to moderate but non-life-threatening injuries, though their current conditions were not made available. Traffic was backed up to Chase Street while the GPD worked the scene.

Police did not say if charges in connection with the incident are currently pending. The investigation remains ongoing.

The injured victims of this accident are in our thoughts, with hopes of a full recovery for all involved.

Multiple-Vehicle Accidents in Chicagoland

Authorities with the Federal Highway Administration record more than 2.5 million junction occurrences each year (FHA). The bulk of these collisions are caused by inattentive or left-turning drivers. And, according to the authorities, these intersections account for more than 41% of all vehicle accidents in the United States.

Cook County, unfortunately, has a high rate of motor vehicle accidents, with many of them occurring at busier junctions. Furthermore, according to state officials, about one-quarter of all vehicle accidents in Illinois occur in and around the Chicago metropolitan region.

When victims of accidents suffer injuries as a result of the carelessness of others, it is they and their families that bear the brunt of the consequences. Regardless of what caused the crash, this is true. Victims must navigate a hard and unpleasant route that includes excruciating psychological anguish, excessive medical expenses, and financial burden.

If you’ve been injured in one of these accidents, or if you’ve lost a loved one as a consequence of one of these accidents, you may be able to pursue a range of legal options. After being engaged in an incident that wasn’t your fault, you should contact an automobile accident attorney in Chicago as soon as possible.

  • "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.
