Northbrook, IL – Three-Driver Accident at Dundee Rd & Western Ave Leaves Three Hospitalized

Northbrook, IL - Three-Driver Accident at Dundee Rd & Western Ave Leaves Three Hospitalized

Northbrook, IL (May 22, 2023) – Thursday morning’s commute was delayed due to a multi-vehicle accident that occurred near the junction of Dundee Road and Western Avenue, according to officers with the Northbrook Police Department.

Per the NPD’s latest reports, the collision happened just before 7:05 a.m., and a section of Dundee Road was blocked for almost an hour while the scene was investigated.

All three drivers involved were brought to local hospitals, although only one of them needed serious medical attention.

Police say that the suspected at-fault motorist was heading west when he or she turned left in front of an eastbound car on Dundee Road. When the first driver hit the eastbound vehicle, that car flipped onto its side. The first driver also collided with a third vehicle that was stopped at the intersection.

The officer issued a citation to the suspect driver for failing to yield while making a left turn. In the meantime, an investigation remains ongoing, and no further details about the victims have been made public.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their loved ones. We hope for their full recovery.

Injury-Causing Crashes in Chicagoland

More than 2.5 million accidents involving multiple drivers, major roads, interstates, and other high-traffic areas are reported annually to the Federal Highway Administration (FHA). Most of these accidents are brought on by careless drivers or people making left turns. More than 43% of all vehicle accidents in the United States occur at these crossings, according to government statistics.

Sadly, there are a lot of traffic accidents in Cook County, and many of them occur at the busiest junctions. Authorities in the state of Illinois report that one-fourth of all vehicle accidents occur in and around the Chicago metropolitan region.

Victims and their loved ones bear the full weight of the consequences when someone else’s carelessness leads to an injury. Whatever the root cause of the mishap, this holds true. The victims have to go through a torturous ordeal that includes emotional anguish, expensive medical bills, and financial stress.

  • "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.
