A crash on Sunday evening in the southwest suburb of Orland Park lead to the death of 24-year-old Ronald Bobowski.
At about 6 p.m. a SUV traveling westbound on 143rd collided with a minivan making a left turn into the intersection. The driver of the SUV, Ronald Bobowski, then lost control and slammed into a pole. Bobowski was extracted from his vehicle when paramedics arrived and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. He sustained multiple injuries from the crash, and was pronounced dead by the medical examiner’s office at 7 p.m. Sunday night.
The driver of the minivan was a 51 year old woman and was with two passengers. They received medical attention, but were later released. The driver was cited for failure to yield while turning left and no proof of valid insurance.
These types of accidents are extremely unfortunate. The last thing that any family member should have to think about is a lawsuit. However, the immediate investigation of such accidents by a third party is vital in determining the liability in the crash, especially when insurance is an issue. The more time that passes, the more likely witnesses are to forget details. In addition, it is important that the Bobowski family seeks out an attorney to represent the victim during the traffic hearing, in the event that citations were issued.
