Driving in the Chicago metro area can be chaotic. The highways are packed with commuters, commercial vehicles and sightseers alike - some racing by at speeds far in excess of the speed limit, others driving in the center lane at 45 miles per hour, and still more who are distracted or seemingly unaware of their surroundings.
A Chicago man survived a horrific crash that killed three passengers and hospitalized a fourth. Investigators in a nearby state said no other vehicles were involved in the Interstate 80-94 crash. The fatal accident happened in the early morning hours of a recent Sunday.
Drivers' mistakes are often responsible for Illinois motor vehicle accident injuries and deaths. However, fatal car crashes also occur due to actions taken or omissions made by third parties. Examples would be a fatal accident caused by a manufacturer's automotive defect, like a faulty airbag, or the failure of a bar to stop serving alcohol to a patron.
