As discussed on the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) page, there are many ways in which head injuries can occur. Among the most common are those resulting from vehicle accidents, although there are many other potential causes as well.
A recent incident in Chicago Ridge which resulted in a boy getting a serious head injury is seen in the August 22, 2015 abc7chicago.com article titled “16-year-old seriously injured in road rage incident in Chicago Ridge.”
As seen in the article, a series of events unfolded, resulting in a 16-year-old boy allegedly jumping on the hood of a car, wielding a baseball bat. The car then drove off, with the boy still on the hood. The boy fell off the car, and, as stated in the article, “suffered severe head injuries.”
He was taken to a hospital for treatment of the accident injuries, and is on life support.
Additional details and possible updates can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the abc7chicago.com article seen above, as well as the August 22, 2015 Batavia Patch article titled “Boy, 16, on Life Support after Road Rage Incident.”
