Woman dies and 2 others injured in truck accident in Illinois

Not only do drivers have to look out for other vehicles on the road, they often have to be wary of extreme weather conditions. The chances of a vehicle accident are higher when the roads are wet or slippery due to either snow, ice or rain. This may have been one of the factors in a recent truck accident in Illinois.

The accident happened on the freeway at approximately 5:59 p.m. one evening in early February. The crash, which involved two vehicles, resulted in one woman suffering serious injuries. These injuries proved to be fatal. The woman ended up being pronounced dead at the scene of the incident, according to the latest reports from authorities released to the public.

The 37-year-old woman had lost control of her Chevrolet Impala while she was driving on the road, which at the time had been covered with snow. The car spun into the other lane with traffic heading in the opposite direction. The Chevrolet crashed head-on into a Ford pickup truck that was carrying one driver and a passenger. The occupants of the pickup truck were transported to a local hospital in order to treat injuries not considered life-threatening.

Those who have suffered injuries or damages in a truck accident in Illinois may be able to obtain some monetary reimbursement by filing a civil lawsuit. However, success will depend upon the evidence presented in support of a plaintiff's legal argument. Therefore, careful preparation while being armed with knowledge of the law will prove to be a plaintiff's best chance in prevailing in litigation.
