GENEVA, ILLINOIS (November 1, 2022) – Two people were killed and one person was critically injured in a Geneva three-vehicle car accident by the intersection of Kirk Road and Fabyan Parkway.
Kane County officials are saying that the accident took place around 12:45 a.m. on Saturday. A Dodge Charger entered the intersection against a red traffic light before hitting a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe.
The Dodge Charger kept going after the first crash before colliding with a tow truck. Paramedics were called to the scene of the collision to tend to the injured.
Sadly, two people died and one person in the Hyundai was transported to the hospital with critical injuries. A full investigation remains ongoing at this time.
Liability For Geneva Car Accidents
Car accidents remain one of the leading causes of serious injury and death in the United States. According to the IIHS, “There were 35,766 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2020 in which 38,824 deaths occurred. This resulted in 11.7 deaths per 100,000 people and 1.34 deaths per 100 million miles traveled.” There are a number of steps that drivers should take in order to help avoid collisions.
- Drivers should check their blind spots before turns.
- Drivers should slow down during periods of inclement weather.
- Drivers should abstain from alcohol and other intoxicating substances.
The vast majority of car accidents involve some amount of human error. All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care and obey traffic signals. If a driver goes through a red light and is involved in a collision, this could be considered prima facie evidence of their failure to yield. When a driver is negligent and causes an accident, they could be susceptible to civil liability for the crash.
