Illinois car accident leaves three injured

Three individuals were injured in a two-car collision that took place on Illinois State Route 37 south of West Frankfort. The car accident occurred at Logan Road when one driver lost control of a vehicle and managed to crash into the front left corner of an approaching vehicle.

The Illinois State Patrol reported that the 67-year-old driver of a 2005 Ford Focus was traveling north on Illinois State Route 37 when she lost control of her vehicle. Her car drifted off of the road and, when she tried to regain control of her vehicle, she over corrected and ended up going into the southbound lane.

The driver of the Ford Focus was ticketed for the accident. The other driver was traveling in a Hyundai Sonata heading south and ended up injured when the Focus driver abruptly came into his lane. In addition, the Sonata driver, a 65-year-old man, had a 64-year-old passenger from Johnston City, Illinois, in the vehicle with him. Both drivers and the passenger had to be transported to Herrin Hospital for their injuries. The driver of the Focus was charged with improper lane usage that led to the accident.

In Illinois, negligent drivers can easily cause responsible drivers to be involved in automobile accidents that can have devastating consequences. Even in cases like the one above, where the fault seems obvious, insurance companies may try to avoid paying people the compensation that they deserve. Personal injury attorneys, on the other hand, may be able to help secure a just settlement for those injured through the negligence of others. People involved in automobile accidents may find it helpful to consult personal injury attorneys who may explain their rights and options and recommend courses of action.
