Stevenson, IL - Multiple-Vehicle Wreck, Injuries on I-55 at La Grange Rd

Stevenson, IL (June 8, 2022) – According to local officials, a multiple-vehicle incident occurred in the Stevenson area on Wednesday afternoon, June 8.

The apparent rear-end collision happened when a passenger vehicle traveling on Interstate 55 Outbound at La Grange Road collided with another driver in the right lanes around 2:05 p.m., according to Stevenson Police.

Two persons were injured, but their present status is unclear. They suffered minor to moderate injuries and are both expected to recover.

Authorities said no charges are pending in connection with the incident at this time, although the investigation is still ongoing. While officers worked to clear the area, traffic was backed up all the way to 1st Avenue for around an hour.

Motor Vehicle Accidents & Injuries in Greater Chicago

Every year, more than 2.5 million traffic accidents are recorded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHA) at the nation’s busiest intersections, as well as major highways and interstates. The majority of these incidents are caused by inattentive or left-turning drivers, both on multi-lane thoroughfares and at busy intersections. According to officials, these locales are responsible for more than 40% of all automotive accidents in the United States.

Unfortunately, Cook County has a high rate of motor vehicle crashes, with a disproportionate majority of these occurrences occurring at more crowded intersections. Furthermore, one-fourth of all automotive accidents in Illinois occur in and around the Chicago metropolitan area, according to state officials.

People who are injured as a result of another person’s negligence will suffer the brunt of the incident’s repercussions, along with their families. This is true regardless of the circumstances that lead to the accident. Victims are forced to travel a perilous and harrowing path marked by intense psychological suffering, costly medical expenditures, and financial difficulty.

  • "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.
