Woman in Evanston, Illinois, trapped under UPS track

A frightening accident happened in Evanston, Illinois, when a woman was hit by a UPS truck. The truck actually drove over her and pinned her below it, and reports indicate that the driver was not initially aware that she had been hit at all. Her cries alerted him, however, and emergency crews were called to the scene.

After the crews were able to get her out from under the truck, she was brought to NorthShore Evanston Hospital. Her injuries are said to be serious. When the first reports of the accident came out, her life was said to be in danger due to those injuries, but the medical crews have now changed her condition to stable, though she is still in critical condition.

The driver of the truck has been removed from duty by UPS, and an investigation into the crash is occurring. The police did issue a citation to the driver, saying that proper care to avoid a pedestrian was not used. However, the police do not know if the woman was jaywalking at the time of the crash or if she was using the crosswalk.

The accident happened right around 5:00 p.m., when the truck came down Central Avenue and then turned to go out onto Ashland Avenue, heading south. The woman who was struck is 30 years old.

When serious injuries are suffered in a truck accident, the cost of medical treatment can be very high, and it is important for those who are hurt to know what rights they may have to compensation that can help to cover those costs.
