Six hurt in Chicago accident involving motorcycle and car

Six people were injured in an accident on Sunday night involving a motorcycle and a car, Chicago Breaking News reported.

The Chicago traffic accident in the Humbolt Park neighborhood occurred at Mozart and Division Streets at about 11 p.m., Chicago Police spokesman David Banks told CBS2.

Media reports indicate four people were critically injured in the crash involving a motorcycle and a car.

Five ambulances responded and the four people in critical condition were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital and John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County while the other two were taken to Norwegian-American Hospital in stable condition.

No other information has yet been made available, but the location of the accident indicates it may have occurred at an intersection, possibly from someone failing to yield the right of way.

While any motorcycle accident is very serious for motorcycle riders, it is somewhat unusual for motor vehicle passengers to be critically injured in an accident with a motorcycle. It is possible that the car went off the road or struck another object after the colliding with the motorcycle.

Authorities have not reported who was at fault in the accident. It has also not been reported if Chicago car accident lawyers or motorcycle accident attorneys are involved in the case.

Injured passengers will have a claim regardless of which vehicle was at fault, while the rights of the drivers could differ depending on the facts of the accident.
