Wrong Way Crash Injures Two

Early this morning, a wrong way driver traveled six miles up I-55 and crashed into another vehicle on Lake Shore Drive – critically injuring both drivers. The Jeep slammed into the Toyota Corolla on the ramp from southbound Lake Shore Drive to the outbound Stevenson. The injuries appear to be non-life-threatening. Both drivers were being treated at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Alcohol is suspected as a possible factor in the accident.

Britax Recalls 14,000 Infant Safety Seats

Britax Child Safety Inc. is recalling certain Chaperone restraint systems for infants because the harness adjusters may detach from the seat.  The affected seats were built between September 1, 2010 and April 30, 2011 – 14, 220 of which were sold in the United States. If the adjusters – which are used to tighten and loosen belts to keep the child in the seat – were to break, the child would not be properly restrained during a crash.  These types of defects have the potential to be serious and even fatal. If you own one of these sets, please discontinue use and find appropriate contact information for the company here.
