Two Injured in Southern Illinois Car Accident

March 22, 2017
An early morning car accident has injured two individuals in southern Illinois. The accident occurred at approximately 1:30 a.m. on Sunday near Marion. According to the Williamson County Sheriff’s Department, 30-year-old Danielle Wilfong was operating a vehicle along Route 37 when she veered off the roadway and collided with a tree near the intersection of Route 37 and Prosperity Road. Wilfong and her 32-year-old passenger, Justin Vlasak, were both seriously injured in the auto accident. The Williamson County Fire Department had to extricate both individuals from the vehicle, and they were then transported to the hospital by ambulance. The condition, as well as the cause of the accident, is currently unknown. The crash is under investigation.
Individuals involved in single-vehicle auto accidents often assume that they do not have grounds to file an auto accident case. Auto accidents are caused by several different factors including negligent driving, dangerous roadways, and vehicle design flaws. Car accidents occur thousands of times each year, and when the negligence of another is to blame, those individuals should be held responsible. An individual who was injured as a passenger in a single-vehicle accident may have grounds to file against the driver if the driver operated the vehicle negligently. To properly determine the cause of an auto accident and to hold all negligent parties responsible, contact an experienced Illinois auto accident lawyer.
