Stevenson, IL - Victims Injured in Car Crash on I-55 Inbound at Pulaski Rd

Stevenson, IL (December 6, 2022) – Two cars crashed on Interstate 55 between Stevenson and Chicago on December 6, resulting in casualties.

At around 6:40 p.m., the cops began their probe on the outbound side of the freeway. Significant delays occurred before Pulaski Road, and officers and ambulances were dispatched to investigate and handle any injuries. Chicago Fire Rescue also rushed to put out a car fire sparked by the first event.

According to news reports, at least two persons were seen being taken to the hospital, though there is no formal count of fatalities as of yet.

Local authorities have not released specific information about the wreck. The Stevenson Police Department has asked that anyone with additional knowledge about the incident contact them as they continue their inquiry.

Our hearts go out to the wounded victims and their families.

Chicago’s Auto Accident Rate

In just one recent year, over 1,020 people were murdered in 910 distinct incidents across the state of Illinois. High velocities, crashes with immovable objects, and driver concentration have been identified as the leading causes of deadly automobile mishaps in the state.

The vast bulk of fatalities and serious accidents in Cook County occur on four- and six-lane highways. To make matters worse, the Chicago urban region accounts for nearly 27% of all crashes in the state of Illinois.

When someone else creates a mishap, the casualties are usually responsible for the expenses. Following such catastrophes, emotional and financial harm can be just as catastrophic as bodily losses. Anyone in Chicago who has been hurt in a car mishap that they believe was caused by the recklessness of another motorist should call an advocate right away.

  • "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.
