Western Springs, IL – One Dead, Three Hospitalized in Six-Car Wreck at Ogden & Gilbert Aves

Western Springs, IL - One Dead, Three Hospitalized in Six-Car Wreck at Ogden & Gilbert Aves

Western Springs, IL (September 30, 2022) – A multi-vehicle collision at the intersection of Ogden Avenue and Gilbert Avenue in Western Springs claimed the life of one person and injured three others on Thursday, September 29th.

Six automobiles were involved in the accident, according to police, and the news footage showed the aftermath of Thursday afternoon’s accident, including wrecked cars that were strewn across all four lanes of Ogden Avenue.

The accident resulted in one fatality and three injuries. Among those injured, two were listed as being in critical condition and one as stable. Although police have not released any information about the casualties, it has been reported that a young man and a child were riding in one of the vehicles, a pickup truck.

Likewise, no details about what led up to the collision have been disclosed by the police. Although the inquiry was ongoing well into the evening, Ogden Street was reopened to traffic just before 10:00 p.m.

Our deepest condolences go out to the deceased victim’s loved ones. Our thoughts remain with the injured victims in hopes of their complete recovery.

Traffic Accident Deaths in Illinois

Per data released by traffic experts throughout Illinois and the greater Chicago area, well over 1,000 people lost their lives in accidents statewide in just one recent year. Excessive speed, collisions with stationary objects, and driver distraction are major causes of fatal automobile accidents in the state.

There is an alarming number of deadly accidents on the county’s four- and six-lane highways. To add insult to injury, the Chicago metropolitan area is responsible for just under 30% of all accidents in the state of Illinois.

Many times, drivers’ carelessness is to blame for causing accidents. Being a witness to such occurrences could put you in danger, both physically and psychologically, as well as monetarily. Those in a car crash in Chicago who attribute their injuries to another driver’s carelessness should speak with a lawyer immediately.

In Illinois, a person who suffers injuries in an accident but is not to blame can sue the person or entity they believe is responsible for their injuries in a civil court for monetary damages. If you were recently involved in one in Illinois, you should talk to a lawyer who focuses on auto accidents. Dealing with the negligent driver’s insurance company on your own could 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.
