Recent Chicago Car Accidents Result in Injuries and at Least One Death

In just the last few days, a number of people have been injured in Chicago car accidents. Early Monday, Armando Aguirre died in a Cook County motorcycle accident on I-55. He was pronounced dead at the traffic accident site.

Illinois State Police say that the 37-year-old Chicago rider lost control of his bike during an improper lane change. He was with two other motorcyclists and all three of them are said to have been operating their bikes at a high speed.

Also early Monday, five people were hospitalized in four separate Chicago car accidents. Two people who were hurt during a traffic crash that occurred close to the South Ashland Avenue and West 59th Street intersection were taken to hospitals. Another person who was hurt in a Cook County car accident at South Cicero and Archer Avenues was admitted in serious-to-critical condition to an Oak Lawn hospital. In an unrelated collision, a Chicago motorcycle accident victim was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital. And in yet another Chicago auto accident, this one on South Ashland Avenue, another person was injured enough to be admitted to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County.

On Sunday evening, four people were hurt in a multi-vehicle collision in Chicago’s South Side. All four Cook County car accident victims were admitted to local hospitals in serious-to-critical condition.

It was just the day before that three people sustained injuries in a Chicago rollover accident on the Dan Ryan Expressway. Two people were thrown from the vehicle, while another person had to be extricated. Police say that the driver may have attempted to “take the exit ramp too quickly.” Also on Saturday morning, four people were transported to local hospitals following three unrelated Cook County motor vehicle collisions in Humboldt Park and Garfield Park.
