A tragic car accident claimed four lives and provided another unfortunate reminder about how dangerous the roads are on the Fourth of July weekend. The wreck occurred here in Illinois and it involved just two vehicles. They collided head first, killing four people and leaving another with injuries that were thankfully non-life threatening.
There are hundreds of millions of drivers across the country. For the most part, the vast majority of drivers make it from place to place without a major incident. Sometimes, a driver's reaction to a minor incident -- such as drifting slightly off the side of the road -- can lead to a car accident and serious injuries. Three people in Illinois are left recovering from their injuries after such an incident was believed to have happened.
Drivers can take many precautions to maintain their safety and the safety of others. They can ensure there are no distractions in their car and follow all applicable laws and rules of the road. Unfortunately, in some instances, there is a little more than a strip of yellow paint in the center of the road protecting one driver from another. Just as in a recent car accident in Illinois, a car that crosses the center line can cause significant damage.
For many people in this country, the ability to drive and provide their own transportation allows them to live an independent life. Unfortunately, a person's age, or some illnesses, could impact an ability to drive without jeopardizing their personal safety and the well-being of others nearby. For example, a recent car accident in Illinois, allegedly caused by an elderly woman, has taken one life and injured several others.

This particular car accident was likely the result of poor driving decisions and possible speeding.
Illinois residents may know about the startlingly high statistics regarding brain damage and sports-related injuries. However, it may not be as well-known that car accident impacts are actually the second-leading cause for brain damage. Many victims may not ever realize that they have suffered from long-term damage until long after the initial car accident has occurred.
Driving while drunk can bring with it a host of problems. Driving at excessive speeds can do the same. When the two are combined it can be a recipe for disaster that results in a fatal car accident and possibly criminal charges.
