car crash

State Rep. Mike Unes is working with Hollis Township, I-DOT and the Illinois State Police to install a stop light at the intersection of Route 24 and Cameron Lane.


Unes says a car crash at the intersection last month that killed a 21-year-old mother, Kaitlyn Hines, was devastating. He says too many accidents and close-calls have taken place at the intersection to overlook the issue.

Authorities in central Illinois say three people were killed when a vehicle left a roadway and crashed into a lake.  The Fulton County Sheriff's Department says the accident happened Monday night southwest of the city of Canton. Police say a preliminary investigation found the vehicle was traveling on Route 5 when it veered off the right shoulder before crashing through grass and brush, rolling down an embankment and landing on its side in the water.

A jury has ruled the city of Chicago must pay nearly $2.5 million to a Chicago Transit Authority train operator who was injured after a police car chasing a bicyclist ran into a Brown Line train.  A Cook County jury ruled last week in favor of CTA worker Jeffery Bryant, who suffered a serious spinal injury after the August 2012 crash in the Albany Park neighborhood.

Lil Rel Howery of NBC's "The Carmichael Show" has been arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge.  The 36-year-old Chicago comedian was arrested Sunday night after a collision involving a car in which he was riding.
