6 hurt in 3-vehicle crash in Illinois

Multi-vehicle crashes can be some of the most dangerous since it's possible for victims to face injuries from the initial impact and a secondary impact. In pile-up crashes, it's normal to see multiple people suffer injuries and for those injuries to be significant in some cases.

That's what happened in this instance. Six people were hurt in a multi-vehicle crash reported on April 13. According to the report, the incident involved two police officers and three vehicles in all, leading all involved to receive medical care at the scene and five to go on to receive care in area hospitals.

There's not much information on what led up to the crash, but the crash happened at the 4600 block of West Washington Boulevard. Three vehicles collided including the police's unmarked squad car, a vehicle with two occupants and a third vehicle with two occupants.

The officers were taken to Rush Hospital for treatment, while those in the second vehicle were taken to Mt. Sinai and Stronger Hospital in serious condition. The third vehicle also had two people inside. One was able to receive treatment at the scene, and the other was taken to Loretto Hospital. They were reportedly stabilized.

Multi-vehicle collisions create multiple impacts and threaten people's lives. Car accidents can happen anywhere and at any time, when the police are involved and when they aren't. If you're injured in a traffic accident like this one and are the victim of another driver's poor decisions, it's important for you to stand up for yourself. You should not be left to deal with the financial losses on your own.
