The Chicago Police Department reports that a 45-year-old man died Monday afternoon when a multi-vehicle crash unfolded along West 115th Street.
According to reports, the man who died was Charles Kimbrough. Police say he was working around a beer truck when 30-year-old Walter Thompson drove a Hyundai Sante Fe into the scene at about 3 p.m. The SUV contacted several other vehicles, and Mr. Kimbrough somehow became pinned against a nearby bus from the Chicago Transit Authority.
In addition to the fatal injuries for Mr. Kimbrough, multiple other people were hurt and had to be hospitalized for treatment. No more identities are known at this time.
It is currently suspected that Mr. Thompson may have been driving under the influence when he caused the crash. He faces related charges, and is also suspected of committing numerous other offenses.
Seeing a copy of the Illinois accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about Illinois Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
