    Multiple Car Accidents, On A Rainy Chicago Wednesday

    Last updated 3 years ago

    Wednesday November 6th, 2013 was host to multiple car accidents during the morning commute in and around Chicago, IL.  

    One car accident that occurred near 85th street on Chicago’s Dan Ryan Expressway was extremely serious, leaving three adults and one child in serious to critical condition.  Unfortunately, one of the injured adults, a woman in her 30s passed away shortly after arriving at Chicago’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital from injuries sustained during the car accident.

    Other car accidents have been reported throughout the day but luckily no other tragic accidents have been reported.  With the continuous rainfall today please be extra cautious driving home tonight.  Car accidents are the most common type of accidents in the United States.  On inclement weather days the risks of an accident increases greatly.  Be cautious of areas that may be slippery or of low-lying areas where pools of water may start collecting.

    Please check back later for more information regarding this car accident and other automobile accidents that occurred in and around Chicago, IL.  

    Fatal Car Accident takes 102 Year Old Women From Floosmoor, IL.

    Last updated 3 years ago

    Margaret Clark a 102 year-old resident from Flossmoor, IL was pronounced dead at 10:40 pm this past Saturday.   Margaret was passenger in her daughter's car at 12:30 pm on her way to a dental appointment when the car accident occurred.   Medical experts declared Margaret ‘s death was from injuries cased by the blunt force trauma from the car accident.    

    Margaret life was cut short by an unfortunate car accident, but Margaret’s life was described as anything but cut short.  She was a beloved neighborhood figure by all.  She won the children of the neighborhoods hearts by handing out the always-coveted full size candy bars on Halloween.  She justified the larger candy bar by saying they were her favorite candy, and they shared the same name.   Handing out full size candy bars only scratched the surface of her extraordinary generosity.   She was a dedicated volunteer at the YMCA where she taught disabled children the joy of swimming until she was well into her 70’s.  She also dedicated time to help the visually impaired learn how to read.   When Margaret wasn’t devoting her time else where, she could be found knitting, painting, sketching or meticulously working in her garden.   Her superior gardening skills had neighbors comparing her yard to one you may see in a magazine. 

    Margaret may no longer be with us anymore but her decades of giving and helping keep her alive in all those she touched.  Margaret was described as a one of a-kind person.   Who touched more lives then she could ever imagine.

    Thoughts and well wishes go to the Clark family.
