Fatal Car Accident On Edens Spur In Illinois

On Saturday evening (December 3), there was a fatal automobile accident on the Edens Spur near Northbrook, Illinois. 

The accident occurred at 5:37 p.m., as a man was driving a vehicle westbound on the Edens Spur.  According to the Illinois State Police, as he driving on the Spur at Waukegan Road he attempted to turn around in an emergency vehicle crossover area.  The area was not illuminated, and as such his vehicle was likely hard to see.

A female motorist driving eastbound did not see the man’s vehicle until it was too late to stop; she then struck the man’s vehicle on the driver’s side.

The man, a 40-year-old from Chicago, was taken to Glenbrook Hospital and pronounced dead at 6:39 p.m., according to Illinois State Police.
