Illinois Truck Crash Claims Two Lives

According to Illinois State Police, on June 2, 2011, at approximately 3:50 p.m., a red car traveling eastbound on Interstate 70 near Greenville crossed the center median and struck a tractor-trailer truck headed westbound on Interstate 70.

The driver of the tractor trailer semi truck, Jay L. Lewis (46 year old resident of Akron, Indiana), escaped the Illinois truck crash with only minor injuries.  Jay Lewis was treated and released from the Greenville Hospital following the truck accident.

The driver and passenger of the car lost their lives as a result of the crash.  The identity of the driver of the red car has not yet been released by police.  The deceased passenger of the red vehicle has been identified as Robert E. Hamilton (44 year old resident of Springfield, Illinois).  Prayers go out to the truck crash victims and their families.

Approximate accident location:

Tractor trailer accidents are responsible for countless deaths across the United States every year.  Tractor trailer trucks are extremely large vehicles that pose a threat to drivers of smaller cars.  If a loved one is killed as a result of the negligent driving of another, the family members of the deceased are entitled to reimbursement for their loss through a wrongful death action.  An Illinois or Missouri wrongful death attorney will fight to ensure the family members of the deceased are reimbursed for the horrific loss.  Wrongful death attorney Chris Dixon is available to provide education on submitting a wrongful death claim at your convenience at 314.409.7060, or toll free at 855.402.7274.
