In the morning of August 12th there were three car accidents on the Bishop Ford highway within 10 minutes. The first accident occurred on the northbound side of the Bishop Ford near 120thstreet around 3:20 am. Two vehicles hit each other and rolled over leaving three injured. Two were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in serious to critical condition after one person was ejected from their vehicle, while the third person went to an unknown hospital.
On the opposite side of the highway, people had slowed down to satisfy their curiosity about the accident which caused a three-car crash. Two people suffered minor injuries from this accident and were taken to the John H. Stroger, Jr Hospital of Cook County.
Around the same time that traffic was building in northbound lanes, a separate car was being pursued onto the highway by a police officer. The chase was initiated by the officer from Burnham when he saw a car speeding and almost hitting pedestrians in the parking lot of Will’s Sports Bar. The suspect hit a few cars, injuring no one, before being apprehended after exiting the highway.
The driver was Paul Woods, 24, of Tinley Park. He was charged with one felony count of aggravated fleeing and eluding police, a misdemeanor DUI, as well as being cited for speeding in excess of 100 mph and reckless driving. Luckily, no one was killed in the string of accidents which occurred that Sunday morning. If you have experienced injuries due to the negligence of another driver, you may be entitled to compensation proportionate to your suffering.
