Lansing, IL (December 6, 2019) – The woman who was killed in a multi-vehicle accident on Wednesday evening, December 4th, in Lansing, Illinois has been identified. The collision occurred at around 5:45 p.m. near the intersection of Interstate-80 and Torrence Avenue. The Cook County medical examiner identified the deceased victim as Patricia Bailey, 24.
Authorities at the scene reported that Bailey lost control of her black 1999 Chevrolet sedan and veered across multiple lanes on I-80, striking the guardrail. This caused the Chevy to roll over, colliding with a red 2018 Lexus SUV operated by a man, 67, of Chicago. The Lexus then struck a white 2012 Porsche sedan driven by a man, 39, of Dyer, Indiana.
Local authorities are currently investigating the accident.
We would like to extend our condolences to the family of Patricia Bailey at this time.
Illinois Rollover Crashes
Being involved in a rollover can be devastating. Occupants who are ejected from the vehicle can sustain serious injuries. In severe cases, occupants are killed by the force of a rollover collision.
Nearly 35 percent of all fatal passenger vehicle crashes are due to rollover. An overwhelming majority of fatalities involved unrestrained passengers. In some cases, surviving family members can contact an Illinois car crash lawyer to protect their legal rights.
