Stevenson, IL – Injury-Causing Wreck on I-55 at Kedzie Ave

Stevenson, IL - Injury-Causing Wreck on I-55 at Kedzie Ave

Stevenson, IL (March 17, 2023) – On the evening of Friday, March 17, Stevenson Police and the Chicago Police Department responded to a two-car collision near the Kedzie Avenue exit ramp from Interstate 55.

On the freeway’s outward side at about 7:25 p.m., police officers started their investigation. Reports of significant back-ups on Western Avenue led authorities to dispatch medics and police to the area to assess the damage and clear the route. As a result of the incident, another vehicle caught fire, and firemen from Chicago Fire Rescue responded to the scene.

Local TV video showed at least two people being taken to the hospital, but no official injury count has been issued.

The police, however, have not provided any updates. The Stevenson PD has asked that anybody with more information regarding the event get in touch with them.

The wounded victims are in our thoughts for a speedy and full recovery.

Car Crashes Across Chicago

Nearly 1,000 separate accidents resulted in the deaths of between 1,000 and 1,100 people in Illinois in a recent year, according to traffic analysts and related officials. Research in the state has identified excessive speeds, collisions with stationary objects, and driver distraction as the primary causes of fatal car accidents.

Multi-lane roadways are the scene of several fatal incidents and significant injuries in Cook County. The greater Chicago area is responsible for almost one-third of all accidents in Illinois.

Injured motorists often bear the brunt of other drivers’ carelessness. It’s possible that mental and financial wounds sustained in the wake of tragic occurrences are as bit as terrible as physical ones. If you’re a Chicago resident and you’ve been hurt in an automobile accident that you think was caused by another driver’s negligence, you should talk to a lawyer right once.

You may seek compensation in Illinois if you suffer injuries in a vehicle accident that wasn’t your fault. Talking to an attorney who focuses on auto accident lawsuits in Illinois might be helpful if you were recently involved in an accident. It may be challenging to negotiate with the insurance company of the irresponsible motorist on your own.
