On the South Side of Chicago, November began with a deadly truck crash on I-94 (the Dan Ryan) at 91st Street. Police reported that the dump truck struck the wall on the right near 91st Street before crossing all the traffic lanes to slam into the wall on the left. The truck driver, who was on his way home after delivering a load, was pronounced dead. No one else was injured.
Although the authorities have not yet released many details of the crash, initial news reports suggest that the driver of the dump truck was cut off in traffic. The police are conducting a criminal investigation into the crash.
While any fatal accident is tragic, as truck accident lawyers, we are especially saddened when someone is killed in a truck crash. Our hearts and prayers go out to the family of the deceased.
