Stevenson, IL - Multi-Car Crash with Injuries Occurs on I-55 Near 175th St & Cicero Ave

Stevenson, IL (May 2, 2023) – Two cars collided before 175th Street and the Cicero Avenue exit ramp from Interstate 55 on the morning of Tuesday, May 2, prompting the Stevenson Police and the Chicago Police Department to respond to the scene.

At approximately 9:45 a.m., police officers began their investigation on the Inbound side of the freeway. Long delays were reported, and officials said ambulances and police were sent to the scene to check for injuries and clear the road. Another car caught fire as a consequence of the collision, and firefighters from Chicago Fire Rescue arrived to put it out.

Despite the fact that no official injury toll has been released, at least two persons were seen being transported to the hospital via local news footage.

However, there have been no updates from the police. The Stevenson PD has requested that anybody with more details about the incident be contacted.

Our thoughts remain with the injured victims in hopes of their complete recovery.

Car Accident Injuries Across Chicagoland

According to traffic experts and associated agencies, over 900 crashes resulted in the deaths of 1,000 to 1,100 persons in Illinois in just one recent year. High speeds, collisions with stationary objects, and driver attention are the major causes of fatal car accidents in the state.

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. In the wake of tragic events, mental and financial harm may be just as debilitating as physical harm. 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 a lawyer that focuses on auto accident lawsuits in Illinois might be helpful if you were recently involved in an accident. Needless to say, dealing with the insurance company of the irresponsible motorist on your own might be challenging.

  • "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.
