Illinois Wrong-Way Crashes
Wrong-way collisions are some of the most catastrophic. These crashes happen at high-speeds and leave victims severely injured. These accidents involve drivers that veer into oncoming traffic, striking another car head-on.
These crashes happen more often than you may think. In many cases, wrong-way collisions involve intoxicated drivers that are unaware of their surroundings. Reckless drivers can be held responsible for their actions with the help of an Illinois car crash attorney.
