Illinois woman charged with causing 4 car accident due to DWI

On Oct. 16, police responded to the scene of an automobile crash involving four cars. The accident occurred after 11 p.m. near the Neuqua Valley High School in Naperville. At least one person was injured in the auto accident. The woman who allegedly caused the crash was arrested for driving while drunk. Officials say the woman also was charged with failing to reduce her speed in order to avoid an accident and driving too fast for the conditions.

Firefighters reportedly had to remove one of the other drivers from a small Honda. Apparently the driver of the Honda smashed his head against the side window in the crash. He was taken to Edward Hospital for treatment. No information regarding the severity of the Honda driver's injuries was provided. The road where the accident occurred was closed to traffic while tow trucks removed the wrecked cars from the scene.

The police have not yet provided any further details about how the accident occurred, saying only that the investigation is still underway. Reportedly, the woman charged has two traffic tickets in her past but no further record of criminal activity in any of the nearby counties.

Vehicle accident injuries are hard enough to deal with on their own, but when you add payment for medical care and lost wages from missing work, it ramps up the consequences even more. Those injured in Chicago car collisions can choose to take action. One way to do this is by pursuing a legal claim in order to recover some financial compensation to cover the damages.
