Wadsworth, IL (April 3, 2020) – A police chase that started in Wisconsin ended in a two-vehicle collision near Wadsworth, Illinois on Sunday, March 29th. The collision occurred near the intersection of IL-173 and Green Bay Road. The pursuit began when authorities gave chase to a 17-year-old in a reportedly stolen vehicle in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.
The chase crossed over into Illinois state lines as the 17-year-old driver traveled at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. The driver struck another vehicle and then took off on foot. The driver of the other vehicle was hospitalized for sustained injuries.
The 17-year-old driver was taken into custody by local authorities. An investigation into the crash is currently in progress.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.
Illinois High-Speed Collisions
Reckless drivers choose to speed for a variety of reasons. In most cases, they just think it’s their right to exceed the posted speed limit. These limits are intended to keep everyone safe, and exceeding them can prove dangerous.
Speeding drivers are responsible for thousands of lost lives each year. Speeding leaves little room for error, and even slight mistakes can end in serious collisions. Injured parties should consult with a qualified Illinois car crash attorney to pursue lost compensation.
