Hampshire Twp, IL - Five Teens Hurt in Single-Car Crash at Dietrich & Briar Hill Rd

Hampshire Twp, IL (February 11, 2023) – On Saturday, February 11, a single-vehicle accident in Hampshire Township resulted in the injury of five teenagers. 

The incident occurred on Dietrich Road near Briar Hill Road at around 2:50 a.m. It was reported that the 2019 Honda HRV was headed eastbound at a high rate of speed. This is when the vehicle left the roadway and hit a tree. 

The 16-year-old female driving the car was airlifted to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge in serious condition. The 15-year-old riding in the front seat was taken to Northwest Huntley Hospital before being airlifted to Comer Children’s Hospital in Chicago with life-threatening injuries. 

Three others were also hurt in the crash, and no updates on their conditions have been made public at this time. 

An ongoing investigation into the cause of the accident is in progress. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents in Illinois

Hampshire Twp, IL - Five Teens Hurt in Single-Car Crash at Dietrich & Briar Hill RdAccording to a recent National Safety Council analysis, road accident fatalities are increasing in Illinois. As compared to the first quarter of 2019, the state’s fatal crash total rose by a troubling 11% during the first quarter of 2020. The number of fatal crashes in Cook County, which has Chicago as its county seat, was 269 in 2018 and 294 in 2019. More than 170 fatal collisions have been reported in the county in 2020 alone. In the city of Chicago in 2018, there were 118,304 traffic accidents. A total of 21,881 of those crashes involved at least one injury, while 123 crashes resulted in at least one fatality.

The cost of medical care for injuries sustained in auto accidents can be extremely high, and even a fractured limb can cost you several thousand dollars. For those harmed in motor accidents, the cost of things like medical care and rehabilitation may be even higher. When the financial effects of one injury are combined with the income loss sustained as a result of having to take time off work to heal, the aftermath of a crash can quickly start to wear a victim down. 

It is critical that anyone hurt in an auto accident seek medical care as soon as possible. A ride in an ambulance to the closest medical center is nearly always required in serious car accidents. Depending on the type of injury, symptoms may take more time or less time to manifest. Some injuries may not show symptoms for days or even weeks, so you can’t be sure about your condition in certain situations. If you delay seeking care, the insurance provider can try to claim that the severity of your injuries is exaggerated in an effort to lower the amount they have to pay out.

  • "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.
