Elk Grove Village, IL (August 26, 2023) – A man has lost his life as a result of an automobile accident that occurred on Friday evening in Elk Grove Village.
At around 9:00 p.m. on August 25, the police and firefighters were called to a crash that occurred on Devon Avenue.
According to officials, a semi-truck and a pickup truck collided on Devon Avenue near Nicholas Boulevard. The impact of the crash caused the truck to go underneath the semi-truck, where it became wedged. The pickup truck was severely damaged due to the accident. Authorities secured the roadway as they worked to remove all of the debris that was scattered across the road.
The driver of the pickup truck, identified as an adult male, was fatally injured. He was pronounced dead from his injuries.
The crash is being investigated.
Our condolences go out to the family of the man who lost his life in this crash.
Fatal accidents can be devastating to endure. Unfortunately, hundreds of people die as a result of vehicle collisions in the state of Illinois every year. When truck accidents take place, the chances of severe and fatal injuries are drastically increased. As you can imagine, these vehicles weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds, meaning that they are likely to cause severe damage to anything they come in contact with. Unfortunately, these accidents continue to take the lives of more than 50 victims every year statewide.
Losing a loved one in a fatal truck accident can be difficult to deal with. Fatal accidents often leave families to endure the mental, emotional, and financial consequences. Quite often, families are forced to endure thousands of dollars of costs and losses related to funeral costs, lost earning capacity, and other end-of-life expenses. Although there is nothing that can bring back the lives of those taken away suddenly and unexpectedly, working with a fatal tractor-trailer accident attorney can provide families with legal avenues to collect compensation to help alleviate some of the financial burdens they face moving forward.
