Fox News 41 reported this weekend on developments related to the well-publisized truck crash that took the lives of three Chicago family members and injured several others. Two young children injured in the wreck have been hospitalized for nine days, and they are now returning to Chicago. The children were fortunate to have survived the crash which injured their parents and killed three relatives.
Doctors remarked that they’ve been astounded by the progress both children have made following the devastating accident. The family has filed a truck crash lawsuit against the negligent truck driver and company.
The truck crash occurred near Elizabethtown, Kentucky on Interstate 65. The Humboldt Park family was driving back home after attending a wedding in Florida. There were seven passengers in the Nissan Pathfinder when the accident occurred.
According to reports the family was traveling in their SUV in the early morning, at 3:30am on an unlit portion of the highway. Unexpectedly their vehicle was hit from behind by a FedEx tractor trailer. That impact caused the SUV to spin out of control. It eventually flipped over-five passengers were ejected from the vehicle during the crash.
When emergency medical crews arrived, three people were pronounced dead at the scene.
They included a 26-year old newlywed, and two sisters, one 9 years old and the other 11. The grandmother of the victims explained that the very close family remains in shock. The young girls are described as smart students who had plans to become nurses. Four others were injured in the truck accident, including the two children ages 5 and 2.
