There have been many car crashes in Chicago and throughout Cook County which have involved stolen vehicles. Drivers of these stolen vehicles often drive at a fast speed, as they may be trying to elude police. As well, they may also be involved in other illegal activities from which they are attempting to flee.
Due to the excessive speeds and other reckless driving that often occurs in these stolen vehicles, drivers often lose control. This loss of vehicle control often leads to crashes, and innocent people are frequently injured or killed.
