Illinois motorists have to be careful to ignore the distractions around them more than ever. Prior to the ability of drivers to have access to mobile phones, distractions in and around a vehicle were still an issue, but smartphones  undoubtedly add a dangerous distraction.

Personal injury: 3 injured in multi-vehicle wreck

Because school is out, it is good timing for construction on Illinois roadways to increase.

It is easy to become distracted when traffic slows down, and this can result in serious personal injury and property damage. Unfortunately, three individuals discovered how much damage can occur after they suffered injuries in a recent multi-vehicle wreck.
