A South Side woman has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, a misdemeanor, driving without a license, driving without insurance, and disregarding a traffic control signal following a crash that injured eight people early Monday morning.

The crash took place around 1:35 a.m. Monday, February 3, at the intersection of 43rd Street and northbound LaSalle Street, which runs parallel to the Dan Ryan Expressway on the east side. Authorities report that Robin Sewell, 29,  was driving under the influence when she blew a red light and crashed into a four-door sedan that was driving northbound on LaSalle Street.

She was the only one in the van at the time of the crash—the other seven injured were in the sedan. Among the injured were 5 adults and three children, including a 7-year-old boy and two younger children whose ages were not reported.

Aftermath

According to authorities, the crash prompted the first arriving paramedics to ask for an EMS Plan 1, which involves summoning a total of six ambulances to the scene. The last of the six ambulances left the scene of the crash at around 2:25 a.m., at which point an Illinois Department of Transportation tow truck moved the car from where it had been sitting after the crash to the side of the road. The minivan was off to the side, but not as badly damaged as the sedan was.

How a Car Accident Attorney Can Help You

In cases such as this crash, where the driver at fault had no license or insurance, the proceedings can be difficult. There are no insurance companies to deal with regarding the at-fault party, so seeking compensation can be very complicated and a lengthy, drawn-out process. If you are involved in a crash where the at-fault party has no insurance, you need to get a lawyer involved so that you have at least some chance of being reimbursed for medical bills, missed work, and property damage.

Hiring a lawyer means you’ll be able to ask all of the questions you need, and it also means you’ll have the help of someone who is familiar with dealing with no-insurance car accidents. When you need quality legal help after a car accident, contact Malman Law.
