Chicago Tow Truck Accident Involving Two Cars Injures Six

Six people were injured on the Dan Ryan Expressway today in a multi-vehicle Chicago traffic crash involving a tow truck and two cars on the South Side. The accident occurred around 4:30 pm. Five ambulance were sent to the crash site. Four of the Chicago motor vehicle victims, including one person who was pinned inside a motor vehicle, were reportedly serious to critical condition.

Unfortunately, this Chicago truck crash was not the only large truck crash that happened in the US today. Early this morning, two people got hurt when a semi-truck overturned.

Trucker Randy Long was exiting off a freeway when his truck hit a guardrail and a concrete barrier on a bridge. His semi-truck flipped over.

Long, 47, was taken to a hospital for his injuries. He was also arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Debra Oster, who was sleeping in the bed area of the large truck when the truck accident happened, also sustained injuries. She wasn’t wearing a seat belt.

In another US motor vehicle crash involving a large truck, three people were taken to the hospital after a semi-truck and two sedans were involved in a mulit-vehicle crash late this morning.
