Illinois Dump Truck Accident Near Grove Kills Two North Aurora Teenagers

Two North Aurora teens have died from injuries they sustained in a Kane County truck crash on Highway 47 north of Sugar Grove. The dump truck driver, a 32-year-old Plainfield man, sustained nonfatal injuries.

The accident occurred on Wednesday afternoon near Waubonsee Community College. The car transporting the teens was turning into the Waubonsee entrance when they were struck by a garbage truck that was unable to stop in time.

Killed in the Illinois truck crash were the car driver, 18-year-old Ryan Sherrod, and 19-year-old Brandon Utley. The two of them were best friends.

An investigation into the cause of the truck collision is taking place. So far, no tickets have been issued.

The dump truck involved in the collision belongs to Allied Waste Services in Aurora.

Chicago, Illinois Truck Accidents
It is important that you contact a Chicago truck crash lawyer about your case immediately. There is evidence to preserve and witnesses to interrogate and it is best to do this sooner rather than later.

Determining liability in any traffic crash can be challenging, so it is important that you retain the services of a Cook County injury law firm that knows how to successfully pursue truck crash cases. There may be more than one party who should be held liable for your Chicago personal injuries.

For example, if a vehicle defect contributed causing the truck crash, you may be able to sue the automaker for products liability. If the traffic crash happened because a road was poorly designed and there should be a traffic light at the intersection where the collision occurred, you may be able to file a claim against the city.
