6-car crash with semi leaves one dead

A six-car crash happened in Illinois on Sunday, June 9. It involved, among other vehicles, a semi and a black Subaru. One woman, who was a passenger in the Subaru, died in the wreck.

Per the Illinois State Police, the wreck happened just after midnight on the I-90 expressway. It was in the southbound lanes. The exact cause of the accident is not yet clear, as police are carrying out their investigation. However, they do not think that the drivers were impaired by alcohol or drugs, something that is common in late-night accidents.

Two women, who were both 23 years old, wound up at Lutheran General Hospital, which is located over in Park Ridge. The Chicago Fire Department, which responded to the crash, said that the injuries to both of them were considered life-threatening. It appears that one of the women did survive thanks to emergency treatment, but the other passed away from her injuries.

Three men also suffered injuries in the accident. One was 25 years old, one was 24 years old and the third was 58 years old. Their conditions were listed from fair to serious, though none appear to be as badly injured as the women.

Others injured in the crash included a 63-year-old woman and a 38-year-old woman, both of whom wound up at Resurrection Medical Center. Crews took another man, who is 32 years old, to Community First Medical Center. Finally, a 66-year-old man ended up with the two women noted above at Resurrection Medical Center.

A crash like this can get very complex and clearly leads to numerous injuries. Those who get hurt in car accidents need to know how to seek financial compensation.
