Motorcycle accidents: Head-on crash kills 2 in Illinois

Head-on collisions have the unfortunate chance of proving dangerous under virtually any circumstance. However, when a motorcycle is involved, the chances that those involved may suffer serious injuries or worse is even greater, as motorcycle accidents can have disastrous consequences. A recent collision in which a vehicle crossed into oncoming lanes and struck a motorcycle has claimed the lives of two individuals in Illinois.

The accident is said to have taken place at around 8:40 p.m. on a recent Saturday. Initial investigations indicate the crash occurred when the driver of a westbound truck suddenly lost control of the vehicle and crossed into oncoming lanes. The truck proceeded to strike a nearby motorcycle head-on shortly thereafter, subsequently forcing the driver and a passenger to be ejected from the bike.

Authorities have advised that the driver and passenger of the bike both suffered fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene. While an investigation is currently underway, no further information was provided concerning what might have caused the driver of the truck to cross into the wrong lane of traffic. Following such an incident, the surviving loved ones of the victims may wish to exercise their rights to pursue accountability, but they might need guidance in navigating the civil justice system.

Those who lose loved ones in motorcycle accidents due to the negligent actions of another party may find it beneficial to seek guidance on their available legal avenues as soon as possible. By consulting with an attorney, a person in Illinois could obtain much-needed advice on what to expect from the process and how best to proceed. An attorney can examine the incident and assist a client in pursuing the restitution entitled through a wrongful death claim against the party deemed responsible.
