Auto accident kills 2 teens in Illinois

Experience counts for something. This is true for many aspects in life, especially when it comes to driving a motor vehicle. Younger drivers tend to have a higher chance of having an accident due to their limited time spent behind the wheel. Tragically, this may have played a role in the deaths of two teenagers in a recent auto accident in Illinois.

The accident happened one afternoon in early November when three teenagers were traveling in a car on the road. At the same time, a minivan was traveling in another lane heading in the opposite direction. Somehow, the car ended up veering off the right side of the road. This caused the teenage driver to overcorrect into the path of oncoming traffic.

The minivan smashed into the passenger side of the car. The driver of the car was seriously injured. The front seat passenger died at the scene of the crash. The passenger in the car's backseat was pronounced dead after being transported to the hospital, while the driver of the minivan suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

Although the driver of the minivan is lucky to have survived, he or she may now have to face significant medical bills as a result of the treatment received during the hospital visit following this auto accident in Illinois. On the other hand, he or she may be able to regain some of those costs by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Also, those who lost their loved ones in the accident may want to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
