Illinois personal injury lawyer alerts- Motor vehicle collision involving CFD SUV, truck, and pedestrian resulted in critical injuries.

Chicago, IL—A motor vehicle collision (MVC) involving a Chicago Fire Department (CFD) sport utility vehicle, AT&T truck and pedestrian resulted in the hospitalization of three people on Saturday morning, April 3, 2010. The violent traffic crash occurred in the Chicago Lawn community on the Southwest Side, according to information provided by the

Fire Media Affairs spokesperson Quention Curtis reported that at approximately 8:27 a.m., an AT&T truck struck a Chicago Fire Department SUV at the intersection of South Kedzie Avenue and West 59th Street. On impact, the fire department vehicle was sent careening over the curb of the road, where it consequently struck an elderly female pedestrian on the sidewalk.

Emergency medical services (EMS) personnel seemingly responded to the scene of the pedestrian-involved automobile accident to transport those injured in the wreck to area hospitals for treatment. The 71-year-old pedestrian, who suffered critical injuries in the crash, was reportedly taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center. The two motorists involved in the accident apparently suffered critical injuries as well and were subsequently taken to Holy Cross Hospital to be treated by doctors and nurses.

While reports confirmed only one person, most likely an EMT, was occupying the fire department vehicle at the time, it was not formally disclosed if any passengers were riding in the AT&T truck at the time. Investigations into the injurious traffic collision are expected to be underway.
