Woman Dies in Illinois Car Crash and Others Suffer Personal Injuries

March 22, 2017
It is a well-known fact that seatbelts can save lives when drivers and passengers are faced with a deadly car accident, and the following story is no exception. In Granite City, Edwardsville, ans Collinsville we hear about these types of stories all the time. Sadly a woman from Missouri has died following a fatal car crash.  The motor vehicle accident happened on Interstate 64 in Illinois near East St. Louis on Tuesday in the A.M. when the driver of a car lost control. 

If you or a loved one were injured in a motor vehicle crash, the skilled St. Louis area personal injury attorney Deborah Besserman would like to help you.  Please contact me today for a free consultation.   

A 40-year-old woman that was in the backseat of the car at the time of the car crash was partially ejected from the vehicle after the impact.  The woman was riding in the back with the seats folded down at the time of the crash and was not wearing a seatbelt.  

The unidentified driver of the vehicle was not wearing a seatbelt as well and was thrown from the car at the time of this fatal accident.  The driver is currently in critical condition.  A boy was also a passenger in the vehicle and was sitting in the front seat.  The boy was wearing a seatbelt, and only suffered minor personal injuries.  

The cause for the driver to lose control of the vehicle remains under investigation.   Unfortunately if the driver of the vehicle, as well as the passenger that was killed, were wearing their seatbelts, the outcome may have been much different.  Tragically this is yet another cautionary tale of how seatbelts may help save lives during a crash.
