Chicago Car Accident Injures State Sen. Antonio Munoz’s Brother Outside Southwest Side Polling Place

In Illinois, a brother of State Sen. Antonio Munoz, D-Chicago, suffered head trauma, lacerations, and broke his right leg after he was struck by a speeding car this morning. Martin Munoz, 40, was walking outside a Southwest Side polling site when the Chicago car accident happened. The driver whose vehicle struck him then fled the accident site. Police later brought in a suspect for questioning about the hit-and-run accident. Munoz, who was thrown 15 to 20 feet, had to undergo surgery for his broken leg that needed a rod and screws.

Chicago Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents can result in serious injuries for victims, who have no protection to pad them from the impact of colliding with a moving vehicle. Often, pedestrians are hurt not just when getting hit by an auto but also there are the injuries that can occur from the impact of landing back on the road and/or getting hit by other vehicles that may not be able to stop in time. Broken bones, internal injuries, head injuries, neck injuries, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, and death can occur during a Chicago pedestrian accident.

Just this Saturday, Robert H. Vreeland was killed in a Chicago pedestrian accident when he was struck by a bus on the Dan Ryan Expressway at around 2am. Police say that the 24-year-old either jumped or fell out of his vehicle. Although his death, from multiple injuries, has been ruled a suicide, Vreeland’s family maintains that he would never have killed himself and that key facts pertaining to what happened are missing.
