Crashes that involve one vehicle driving in the wrong direction typically lead to serious, if not life-threatening injuries to vehicle occupants. These collisions are often “head-on collisions” in which vehicle occupants are suddenly subject to very strong physical forces that are highly unnatural in nature. Such collisions are often unexpected and as such can be very difficult to avoid, especially if one vehicle suddenly crosses the center line.

The subject of “head-on collisions” and the injuries involved, as well as the recommendation to talk to a lawyer who handles DuPage County car accident injury lawsuits, is further discussed on the “DuPage County Accidents Involving ‘Head-On Collisions’” page.

Car Accident Near Lombard Seriously Injures Man

There was an accident Friday morning (March 25, 2016) in which a man was injured during a crash on southbound I-355 near the border of Lombard and Glen Ellyn.

According to police, the accident happened as a 33-year-old man driving a Chevrolet Blazer lost control for a currently unspecified reason.  The vehicle then swerved to the right – thereby striking a vehicle in the far right lane – then swerved to the left and struck a concrete median.  Then the Blazer reentered traffic and struck a van in the far left lane.

At the time of the crash, the man driving the Blazer was not wearing a seatbelt, and was partially ejected (i.e. thrown from) the vehicle.  He suffered what were described as “severe injuries” for which he was taken to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove for treatment.

The three southbound lanes on I-355, from Army Trail Road to Roosevelt Road were closed for several hours, until nearly 10:00 a.m., as the crash investigation was conducted.
