Head injuries can happen in a variety of accidents. Recently, there have been a number of serious head injuries that have happened in Chicago area vehicle accidents, including those in which people were hit by cars.
On October 14, 2016, an accident which caused a head injury to a driver happened in Elk Grove Village.
An excerpt from the Daily Herald article of October 14, 2016, titled “Woman injured in crash that stops Route 53 traffic“:
A pickup towing a trailer that was traveling north on Route 53 between Higgins and Biesterfield roads around 6:40 p.m. lost a rear wheel, according to Schaumburg and Elk Grove Village fire officials. The tire crossed into the southbound lanes and hit the woman’s car; she was taken to Alexian Brothers Medical Center with unspecified injuries. The trailer flipped on its side, blocking the northbound lanes.
The October 15 Arlington Cardinal article (“Woman seriously injured…“) says that the tire “hit a 30-year-old woman in the head.”
The driver of the pickup truck was treated at the accident scene.
As seen in an accident scene photo (such as that seen in the abc7chicago.com article of October 15, titled “1 injured after tire flies off truck, smashes windshield of SUV in northern suburbs“) the damage to the SUV appears to be substantial.
Additional details and possible updates concerning this head injury caused by a road hazard can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the Daily Herald, Arlington Cardinal, and abc7chicago.com articles mentioned above.
