A tragic single-vehicle accident has left four people dead and two severely injured. The crash happened around 2.24 pm on Saturday, near Hickory Hills, Illinois.  According to police officials, there were six people in the car when the vehicle swerved upon losing control and hit a tree.

The victims of the single-vehicle accident have not been identified. However, officials said two people died on the spot, while the other two have been rushed to the hospital for treatment. The condition of the remaining two individuals remains undisclosed.

At present, police officials have been directing all their efforts to deduce the circumstances that led to the incident. A bystander has been reported to tell WLS that the outcome of the incident was not only astounding but also devastating in all aspects.

The single-vehicle accident was so harsh that it ended up splitting the entire vehicle in half. In conversation with WLS, Joanna Proszek said that it was the first time she saw an accident so bad and one that left the entire vehicle destroyed and beyond repair.

“It was bad, tragic. I think they just, like, started flying because there is a hill. So, I am thinking they just revved up the engine and they just flew into the tree,” said Proszek to WLS. Although speed is noted to be one of the key factors in the incident, the authorities are still concluding the root cause of the crash that took the lives of two and left several injured.

    “It was bad, tragic. I think they just, like, started flying because there is a hill. So, I am thinking they just revved up the engine and they just flew into the tree,” said Proszek to WLS.

    This comment is suggestive of a scenario that may be of interest.

    I met with my son a few weeks ago and he told me of a bazaar and scary incident he had. He owns an older Yukon truck. He stated that he was driving normally when suddenly the vehicle just took off and continued to accelerate in speed. He managed somehow to control the vehicle until it simply stopped revving and he was able to slow down and stop.

    The article does not mention the type of vehicle in this accident but it looks like a fairly light weight one. The Yukon is a heavy truck and would be more controllable and my son is very good driver. A lighter weight vehicle would be less easily controlled and perhaps the hill made it even a more volatile projectile situation with wheels leaving the ground.

    Just something to consider.
