A lawsuit has been filed by a Chicago woman who lost both her parents in a deadly accident last month. The lawsuit is against a driver who rear-ended a vehicle carrying the woman and her parents on I-290 near the west Chicago suburb of Elmhurst on July 16. According to the lawsuit, the driver crashed into the back of the vehicle at a high rate of speed, pushing it into the rear of a tractor-trailer. Both of her parents died from injuries suffered in the accident, and the woman was injured as well. Her father was 82-years-old, and her mother was 77-years -old. The family was traveling together to celebrate at a graduation party when the tragic accident occurred. The plaintiff brought the suit against the driver and the driver’s employer, Motorcar Solutions, on Tuesday in the Cook County Circuit Court.
