Head-on car accident results in death in Illinois

One of the most important rules of the road is to maintain one's lane when driving. This can help to prevent vehicle collisions, which can result in injury or even prove to be deadly in some cases. Unfortunately, this may have been the case in a recent fatal car accident in Illinois.

The incident happened when a 21-year-old motorist driving a Chevy Aveo failed to maintain her lane and ended up crossing over the center line while on the road. The driver crashed into another vehicle heading in the opposite direction. The other vehicle was being driven by a 20-year-old woman, according to reports released to the public.

The vehicle being driven by the 20-year-old motorist was also transporting two passengers. That driver and one of the passengers, a 21-year-old woman, died from injuries suffered in the collision. The other passenger was a 21-year-old woman who suffered minor injuries and was taken to a nearby medical facility to receive treatment. The driver of the Chevy Aveo was hospitalized and was listed in serious condition, according to the latest reports.

The Illinois State Police is now investigating the fatal car accident. Those who suffered injuries or have lost loved ones in the deadly collision may want to pay close attention to what the police are able to uncover during the investigation. Evidence revealed in the police investigation may be useful in any personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits stemming from the incident. This can help victims and their families obtain monetary reimbursement, which can help pay for medical bills or funeral costs.
