“A Crystal Lake man who was driving a car that went airborne on a hilly road in Hampshire and struck a tree, killing his four passengers, was sentenced today to seven years in prison. Muhammad H. Jaffrie, 29, pleaded guilty last year to reckless homicide in the Sept. 8, 2007, accident on Dietrich Road. The victims of the crash were brothers Kumail Husain, 20, and Zohair Husain, 18, of Huntley; Ayush Joshi, 20, of Hoffman Estates; and Henry Onwualu, 19, of Huntley. The friends were on their way to a Hampshire truck stop for food around 3:30 a.m. when the accident happened,” reports the Chicago Tribune

The bills for hospital stays, 24-hour care, rehabilitation services, doctor visits, medications, surgeries, tests, as well as the loss of income, benefits, and future earnings can take a toll.
