Chicago Car Accident Kills One Woman and Injures Two Men

A multi-vehicle Chicago car crash on the Northwest Side has claimed the life of one woman while injuring two men. The traffic collision happened Thursday afternoon on West Devon Avenue close to a Cook County forest preserve.

According to police, a 2005 Toyota Corolla driven by Jenny Muresan was headed eastbound when it went over the center line and hit two vehicles. Muresan, who was in her 20’s, was ejected from her car as it spun out of control. She died at the Chicago auto accident site. A fourth vehicle was also involved.

Two other car crash victims, both men in their 60’s, were taken to the hospital in serious-to-critical condition. As of Friday, one of the men had reportedly been released while the other man’s condition had stabilized.

According to CBS2Chicago, there are some who say that the stretch of road where this Chicago car accident happened is a dangerous one. It has no stoplights and drivers have a tendency to go fast even though it is not a highway. Considered a shortcut to O’Hare Airport, thousands travel through West Devon Avenue on a daily basis. Barnet Fagel of the National Motorists Association says that the “curvature of road” and “abundance of tree growth” makes it hard for motorists to see too far down the street.

There may be more than one party who should be held liable for your Chicago car accident. A reckless driver, a negligent automaker, or the city, county, transportation department or another entity that contributed to causing your Cook County car accident may owe you and your family Chicago injury recovery.
