Peoria, IL (December 15, 2019) – A woman was hospitalized following a rollover collision in Peoria, Illinois on Friday, December 13th. The accident occurred near the intersection of West Timberedge Drive and West Rachael Drive.

Rollover Accidents in Illinois
Rollovers are sudden events that can leave occupants at risk of sustaining serious injuries. These crashes are often the result of driver error, especially when they only involve one vehicle. These types of collisions are known to be deadly.
Each year, nearly 35 percent of all deadly passenger vehicle collisions involve rollover crashes. 69 percent of those killed in a rollover were unrestrained at the time of impact. In some cases, injured parties may be able to recover lost compensation with the help of an Illinois car crash attorney.
