Three-car accident in Illinois results in injuries

Many car accidents in Illinois occur because drivers violate traffic laws and regulations. When this occurs, all of the drivers involved and their passengers are at risk of suffering injuries. That appears to have been what happened in a recent car accident in Illinois.

According to reports, the car accident in question occurred on April 18 during the afternoon. Apparently, one driver, a 40-year-old Illinois man, was driving his vehicle along a highway when he rear-ended a Jeep in front of him. The Jeep, which was being operated by a 73-year-old man, then reportedly spun out of control into oncoming traffic, striking a third vehicle. The third vehicle was being operated by a 54-year-old Illinois resident.

The reports indicate that all three of the drivers involved in this car accident suffered injuries. In fact, two of the drivers needed to be transported by air to Springfield, Illinois, for medical treatment. Fortunately, it appears that none of the injuries that occurred are life-threatening.

Two of the drivers involved in this car accident received traffic citations, with one - the 40-year-old man who apparently caused the chain-reaction accident - being cited for improper lane usage and failure to reduce speed. In the aftermath of this car accident, the injured parties may be considering the legal options to attempt to recover compensation. With the injures involved, the victims will like require quite a bit of medical treatment. That means that the medical bills could start to pile up pretty quickly for an accident they likely had no part in causing.
