A woman from Chicago was killed a week ago Sunday in an Illinois car crash that occurred in suburban Glendale Heights, according to the Daily Herald. The accident took place around 9 PM at the intersection of Bloomingdale Road and North Avenue.
The victim, Lual Mang, 67, was riding as a passenger at the time of the accident. Glendale Heights police ticketed the driver of the car she was riding in with disobeying a traffic control device and driving without insurance.
The passenger was rushed by ambulance to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood were she was pronounced dead a short time later.
As far as a negligence claim is concerned, hopefully the victim had her own policy of auto insurance. If she did, her family will be able to bring in uninsured motorist claim with her own auto carrier. The insurance carrier of the victim will essentially step into the shoes of the uninsured party and pay on the claim. It was not reported if a Chicago injury lawyer is involved in the case yet.
