At around 3:50 p.m., troopers with the Illinois State Police responded to a three-car collision on US Route 52 near Baker Road in Will County. Based on the information authorities have released thus far, one driver was heading north on U.S. Route 52 and was about to reach Baker Road as another driver was moving southward in the same area.

Injury-Causing Accidents in Chicago
Last year, more than 96,000 individuals were wounded or died in car accidents in Illinois, according to state statistics. Approximately 970 persons were killed as a result of more than 900 tragic occurrences. Moreover, analysts cite collisions with stationary objects, inebriated or drunk driving, and excessive speed as the leading causes of these fatal accidents.
Most traffic accidents in and around Cook County occur at heavily used intersections and on large highways. In point of fact, recent state statistics indicate that more than a quarter of all car accidents in Illinois occur in the greater Chicago area.
Oftentimes, due to the carelessness of others, people wounded in preventable traffic accidents must shoulder the tragic consequences. In addition to growing medical expenses, horrifying physical injuries, and other financial issues, patients must cope with the stress and misery of trauma and emotional anguish.
