Peoria woman fatally injured in early morning car accident

Auto accidents in Illinois have the potential to severely injure victims, or even result in death. Some accidents occur because of weather and road conditions, but others are the result of negligent actions on the part of drivers, whether they involve recklessness, speeding or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Drivers who are negligent put their own lives as well as other people's lives at risk. For this reason, they can be held criminally liable and may also be subject to civil lawsuits.

Residents of Kane, Illinois, are well aware of how devastating car accidents can be. Some of those accidents are caused by extreme weather conditions or by a driver's negligence. Drivers who disobey traffic rules, drive while impaired or drive recklessly are considered negligent drivers. Such drivers, if involved in a collision, can be held liable for the damaged properties and the medical expenses of the victim. Negligent drivers can also be cited and face criminal charges.
