Lyons, Illinois Crash Kills 2 and Injures 3

A head-on car crash that occurred Sunday morning left a seven-year-old boy and an older man dead, while three of the deceased child’s family members sustained serious injuries. The collision occurred on southbound Illinois Route 171 near 47th street.  A wrong-way driver was traveling against traffic in a Buick Park Avenue when he struck a Honda CRV that was carrying a family of four.  According to police, two individuals were ejected from the vehicle while two were pinned inside and the driver of the Buick was pinned inside his vehicle as well.

Of the individuals involved, Damien Colzada, 7, and Herrington Jameson, 43, were pronounced dead Sunday.  Prayers go out to the loved ones of the deceased.

Negligent and reckless driving contributes to countless accidents, such as this accident where a negligent driver drove the wrong way down the highway and killed him self and another on top of injuring others.  If you or a loved one has been injured or even killed in an Illinois or Missouri car crash, an Illinois or Missouri wrongful death lawyer can ensure that you are reimbursed for your harms and losses.
