Chicago area Tollway crash injures five

An Illinois auto accident has injured five people, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The crash happened during rush hour on Tuesday when a vehicle lost control, flipped over several times and then struck a fence and tree. The incident happened on the Tri-State Tollway.

It was a single vehicle accident that occurred around 5:25 PM in the southbound lanes of Interstate 294. Illinois state troopers responded to the accident which occurred about a mile north of the Willow Road exit in the area of Northbrook, Illinois.

It is being reported that the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed and lost control while attempting to change lanes, rolling over three times. The car took out approximately 40 feet of a fence when it left the roadway.

Five occupants in the vehicle were transported to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver that loss control was ticketed, but the nature of the charge was not reported.

In a single car accident such as this one, the injured passengers typically will have a good claim against the at fault driver who lost control the vehicle. It has not been reported if an Illinois auto accident attorney is involved in the case yet.
