Fatal Early-Morning Two-Car Collision On The Dan Ryan Expressway

There was a fatal car accident early this morning (Sunday, December 4, 2016) on the Dan Ryan Expressway on Chicago’s South Side.  Two drivers died as a result of the collision.

According to crash investigation information provided by the Illinois State Police, the accident happened shortly after 3:00 a.m., in the outbound “express” lanes of I-90/94, near 47th Street.  At that time, one vehicle “rear-ended” another vehicle that was sitting on the shoulder.

Both drivers were declared dead at the accident scene.

This fatal “rear-end” collision follows another recent fatal collision of this type, in which one car “rear-ended” another car on the Eisenhower Expressway on November 27, 2016.  That accident is summarized in the November 28 post titled “Three People Injured In Eisenhower Expressway Crash.”

Additional details and possible updates concerning this fatal Chicago expressway accident can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the December 4, 2016 Chicago Sun-Times article titled “Police:  2 dead in crash on Dan Ryan” as well as the December 4 abc7chicago.com article titled “Police: 2 dead in crash on Dan Ryan.”
