Two drivers arrested for DUI in Hinsdale

High speeds, reckless driving and inattention to detail are major hazards to drivers, passengers and pedestrians alike on the roads. This is perhaps most true in the Midwest, where large expanses between communities and businesses create pressure to drive faster.

Illinois, containing some of the region's most open farmlands and forest land as well as the nation's third-largest metropolitan area, poses its share of dangers to drivers. When it comes to public safety on the roads, there are few things more dangerous than a person driving a car, truck or motorcycle under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The town of Hinsdale, on the fringes of Chicago straddling Cook County and DuPage County, experienced two traffic incidents in two days which showed signs of alcohol abuse. These incidents could easily have caused injury if it were not for the intervention of the Hinsdale Police.

A 54-year-old Orland Park man was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and obstruction of identification after he was observed driving erratically near Interstate 294. A 31-year-old man from Villa Park was arrested the next day for DUI and other charges after he drove more than double the speed limit and veered into the wrong lane.

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs may cause serious injury, permanent disability or death if it results in a motor vehicle collision. Victims of these accidents may seek compensation in order to recover medical expenses and lost wages during their convalescence.

A personal injury attorney is an important source of help and advice when you are attempting to be made whole after a drunk driving-related accident.
