Hit and run accident kills Chicago girl

The Thanksgiving holiday weekend took a sad turn for two Chicago girls who were victims to a hit and run accident. An 18 year old girl was killed walking on Lake Street in Chicago, when a car struck her and a friend. Her friend ultimately survived the crash.

The young women were hit shortly after three people were stabbed outside a nightclub three blocks away. It was unclear whether the hit-and-run was related to people fleeing the club. Stone Park police are still searching for the driver of the car.

If you have been involved in a car accident, you may have rights against the driver who caused the crash.

Regardless of the cause of an accident, you should seek the advice of a qualified lawyer anytime you have been injured in an accident.
