Interstate 55 has recently been the sight of many serious and deadly car and semi-truck accidents for drivers throughout Illinois, including those on the Kennedy Expressway portion of I-55 in Chicago. The combination of inattentive drivers and poor road conditions has resulted in far too many injuries and deaths occurring on this major Illinois highway that so many drivers use everyday. Just a few of the reported cases over the last several months include the following:
- Nearly 60 vehicles were involved in a massive pileup on the Kennedy Expressway near North Avenue as a result of icy conditions, resulting in at least 14 people being sent to hospitals.
- One person was killed and others injured when a drunk driver lost control of his Mitsubishi Lancer on the Kennedy Expressway near Armitage Avenue in Chicago.
- A semi truck cab separated from its trailer, causing the driver of the truck to lose control and crash on the Kennedy Expressway at the overpass at Kimball Avenue.
- A construction worker was injured when he was struck by a vehicle following a two-vehicle crash on the Kennedy Expressway.
