Truck and three vehicles involved in accident

Police in Illinois say that an 11-year-old boy was seriously injured in a crash that took place on Aug. 19. The crash occurred at about 10:46 a.m on Interstate 88 in Naperville, and police say that multiple vehicles were involved. A commercial truck rear-ended a Nissan that the boy was in while it and two other vehicles were slowed by traffic. Police say that the truck failed to slow down prior to the collision.

The crash caused the Nissan to collide with a Lexus, and the Lexus was then propelled into a Chevy. In addition to the male child, the driver and another adult passenger in the Nissan were taken to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital for treatment. There were no specifics as to the severity of the injuries experienced by the adults. The driver of the Lexus and a passenger were treated at Presence Mercy Medical Center.

No one in the Chevy was injured, and the driver of the truck was not hurt. Authorities say that they are continuing to investigate the cause of the accident. There were no details as to whether poor road conditions, driver impairment or driver distraction played a role in the accident.

Those who are involved in serious car and truck accidents may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. An attorney may help an injured victim gather evidence to show that a driver was negligent in causing an accident to occur. For instance, a driver who fails to slow down as road conditions change may be negligent. Impaired or distracted drivers are also generally considered negligent in their actions. Compensation may help to pay for medical bills, lost wages and lost future earnings.
