Serious car accidents continue to increase across the state

These days, just getting behind the wheel and going for a short drive can result in a serious accident. It seems roadways across the state of Illinois are bustling with traffic at all hours of the day. Drivers need to be cautious and attentive at all times as they attempt to navigate heavily trafficked areas. However, with so many vehicles sharing the same streets and highways, car accidents are inevitable. Despite stringent traffic laws and updated safety measures, serious and fatal crashes continue to increase every year.

A recent two-vehicle crash in Whiteside County resulted in a citation for one drive and serious injuries for another. The accident happened in the afternoon at the intersection of Bunker Hill Road at Lyndon Road. According to reports, one driver was traveling westbound on Bunker Hill Road and approaching an intersection.

For unknown reasons, the driver ran the stop sign at the intersection and hit another vehicle on the driver's side, according to reports. The driver of the vehicle that was hit suffered serious injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Police said the driver who ran the stop sign was issued a citation for disobeying a stop sign. 

Unfortunately, as populations increase across the state of Illinois, crashes will also continue to increase. Fortunately, most car accidents are very minor, but more and more crashes are proving to be very serious or fatal. Those who have suffered injuries or loss due to negligence in a traffic accident may want to consider discussions with a legal representative. A lawsuit, if successful, could provide financial relief for victims and families to help with medical expenses and other documented losses.
