Coles County, Illinois Car Crash Claims two Girls

Information was released today on the east-central Illinois car accident that killed two young girls and left six individuals injured.  The crash took place last Wednesday in Coles County, when a 2003 Chevy van crossed into oncoming traffic and then collided with a semitrailer.  The van then flipped causing seven people to be ejected from its interior.  Of the eight people in the van, six were injured and passengers Tanisha Madigan, 12, and Harley Madigan, 15, both died at the scene.  According to Illinois State Police, the driver was ticketed for improper lane usage, failure to wear a safety belt, speeding, operating an uninsured automobile and possessing an invalid driver’s license. Prayers go out to the family and friends of the Madigan girls and to the six other passengers who were injured in this unfortunate accident.

Reckless and negligent driving is responsible for numerous American deaths annually. If a loved one is killed because of negligent driving of another, his or her family members are entitled to reimbursement. An Illinois or Missouri wrongful death attorney will work to ensure that the family members of the deceased are reimbursed for their unfortunate loss.  To speak with a wrongful death attorney today, contact Christopher Dixon at 314.409.7060 or at 855.402.7274.  Attorney Christopher Dixon can aid an individual in submitting a Missouri wrongful death claim and receiving the reimbursement they deserve.
