Chicago Area Car Crashes Injure at Least 11 People and Kills 1 over the Weekend

Two people got hurt on Saturday when a woman crashed her car into a Curves fitness club in Lake Zurich. The Chicago area car accident victims, both club customers, were taken to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital.

The driver of the car, 65, was treat at the crash site and released. Police are investigating the cause of the Lake Zurich auto collision, which occurred at around 10 am.

They don’t believe that alcohol or drugs are a factor. They think the woman may have stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake as she pulled into a parking spot. She crashed her vehicle through two panes of glass.

Also this weekend, five people sustained injuries in a Chicago car accident on the Southwest side on Sunday. The two-vehicle crash occurred close to the Nagle and Archer Avenues intersection around 4am.

Two of the Chicago car crash victims were thrown from vehicles. One car accident victim severed an arm in the Illinois traffic crash.

Also on Sunday, four people sustained critical injuries and a Berwyn man died in a five-vehicle collision in the Southwest Side Little Village area. 35-year-old Jorge Serrano was pronounced dead at the Chicago car accident site.

The catastrophic Illinois auto crash took place at California Avenue and 31st Street around 3:30am. One of the vehicles fled the Chicago crash site.

Spinal cord injuries, severed limbs, internal injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and broken bones are just some of the more serious injuries a car crash victim can sustain in a Chicago car accident.
