Sadly, negligent drivers take to the streets of Chicago on a daily basis. Some of these drivers are tires, some are distracted and others are intoxicated. These individuals can take other motorists and pedestrians by surprise, causing devastating, injurious, or even fatal, accidents. Those who are harmed by such negligence should consider taking legal action against the driver who harmed them.
Two Chicago Police officers may want to think about doing that after being injured in a car crash. The accident occurred in the Garfield Park neighborhood when a car failed to stop at a red light and smashed into the officers' police car. The squad car had its lights and siren on at the time of the accident, but authorities believe alcohol may have played a role in the incident. Both officers were taken to the hospital to be treated for their injuries, and one remains hospitalized.
