1 driver killed, another driver injured in Illinois collision

A collision between two vehicles in the town of Lake Villa killed one driver and sent the driver of the other vehicle to the hospital. Authorities are investigating the cause of the crash and did not immediately issue citations.

The accident occurred at approximately 4 p.m. on June 9 when the driver of a 1999 Ford Ranger crossed into westbound traffic on Grass Lake Road and crashed into a red 2006 Chevrolet Silverado, according to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. The driver of the Ranger, a 58-year old man from Lindenhurst, died after he was extracted from his truck and transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville. The driver of the Silverado was taken to the same hospital following the crash, and an available report did not include details of that person’s current condition.

The losses suffered in automobile accidents can be substantial but may be recoverable through an action filed in civil court. Accident victims who survive these might be able to seek compensation for damages, which could include the cost of emergency medical care and other expenses necessary to maintain a reasonable standard of living in the future. Victims might also be able to recover funds that replace lost wages and a diminished or lost earning ability.

Most claims filed after an accident cite negligence as a cause of action, and a thorough investigation of the accident scene and reports created by police authorities are crucial components for establishing fault. A person who is seeking redress through a personal injury lawsuit may work with an attorney who could develop a case demonstrating another party’s negligence and liability. In this case, because reports suggest that the deceased driver crossed into oncoming traffic prior to the crash, the injured driver may be able to name that person as a defendant in a civil claim.
