Deadly crash at site of previous fatal motorcycle accident

Posted on in Motorcycle Accidents

Driving is inherently dangerous but some intersections and stretches of road can be especially unsafe. Illinois residents may feel this way after a recent deadly crash at the intersection of Irving Park Road and Mitchell Boulevard in Schaumburg.

The fatal accident happened just before 11 a.m. According to the Schaumburg Police Department, one car was headed east and tried to make a left-hand turn when a second car hit the passenger side. A 78-year-old passenger in the first car died and the driver was injured. The 78-year-old driver of the second car also suffered injuries. Neither driver&s injuries were life-threatening but the men were transported to a local hospital.

The accident shut down the intersection until the early afternoon. Police officers are still investigating the incident but it is not the first time that the intersection has seen tragedy.

In the summer of 2011, there was a deadly motorcycle accident at the same place. A semi truck turned in front of a motorcycle and killed the rider. Car accidents always bear some amount of risk but when it comes to motorcycles and cars, especially semis, motorcyclists are likely to be hurt. A motorcycle injury can be extensive even when riders are wearing all of the necessary safety gear.

A Chicago motorcycle accident lawyer can help in situations like these when victims of an accident need extensive financial resources to cover the costs associated with injuries and rehabilitation or a wrongful death. Distracted driving, speeding and driving under the influence are all considered type of dangerous or negligent driver. Victims and their families can recover compensation from a negligent or dangerous driver.
