Thousands are injured in drunk driving car accidents

It goes without saying that driving under the influence of alcohol is one of the most dangerous things a person can do. Despite laws and public awareness campaigns, driving while intoxicated continues to be a big problem on roadways in Illinois and across the nation. Every year, thousands of people in the United States are killed or injured in car accidents with drunk drivers.

Recently, a man was charged with DUI after a crash in Bartlett that injured another driver. The accident happened at the intersection of Lake Street and Oak Avenue during the evening hours. According to reports, the man was driving an SUV and drove through a traffic signal. Reports said the man collided with a car that was attempting to make a left turn at the intersection.

Reportedly, the driver of the car suffered injuries and was taken to a local medical center for treatment. Police said the driver of the SUV was suspected of impairment and placed under arrest. According to authorities, the man was charged with two counts of aggravated driving under the influence, driving with a revoked license as well as other serious charges.

Driving while impaired is one of the most reckless and irresponsible things a person can do. Those who get behind the wheel while intoxicated endanger the lives of all those around them. Those in Illinois who have suffered injuries or loss due to negligence in car accidents could benefit from discussions with a legal representative. A successful lawsuit could result in much-needed compensation to help victims and families get through this tragic experience.
