Last week four people were injured in an auto accident when a speeding SUV flipped over on the Kennedy expressway on the Northwest side of Chicago, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The vehicle went up an embankment, flipped over and ejected one person. A preliminary investigation by the Illinois State Police indicated the SUV was northbound on I90 traveling at a high rate of speed and passing other vehicles on the right shoulder. The accident started on the Austin exit ramp, and the vehicle actually came to a stop off the expressway at the intersection of West Gregory Street and North Melvina Avenue.
Two occupants in the car crash were taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, Illinois, one in critical condition. Two other occupants were taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois.
From a Chicago car accident lawyer’s view, all the passengers have a negligence claim againt the driver of the vehicle for injuries sustained in the accident.
