Two Lane Tech High School students were injured on Wednesday outside of Lane Tech High School in Chicago when 61 year old man lost control of his car and crashed into the side of a sandwich shop at the intersection of Addison and Western Ave. Lane Tech has an open campus and there were a number of students walking around the area. A huge crash was felt inside Hero’s Sandwich Shop. Both girls had been crossing West Addison Street when they were struck. Police said that one girl suffered a broken ankle and was treated for minor injuries. It was not determined why the drive lost control of his car.
Lane Tech has many students crossing Western Ave. and Addison Ave. in Chicago during school hours. Its important that drivers drive slowly and watch out for students who cross in the middle of the block. The Chicago personal injury attorneys at Zneimer & Zneimer have handled cases for injured students and injured bicyclist injured right outside of Lane Tech so we know from experience that this is a dangerous area and drivers need to exercise caution when driving in this area.
