Collision Involving an NIU Huskie Bus and SUV in Elburn

Elburn, IL – Cronauer Law, a leading personal injury law firm, wishes to extend its concern and support for all those affected by the recent alarming incident on Sunday night involving a head-on collision between a Northern Illinois University Huskie Bus and an SUV.

The incident occurred at approximately 8:39 pm near Illinois Route 38 at Francis Road in Virgil Township. A 25-year-old woman from St. Charles, the driver of a blue 2021 Hyundai Venue, suffered critical injuries after her vehicle, moving north on Francis Road, made an overly wide right turn onto Route 38. This mistake led her directly into the path of an oncoming NIU Huskie Bus, which was traveling westbound on Route 38, resulting in a severe impact.

The St. Charles driver was quickly transported to Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital in Geneva, demonstrating the urgent care needed due to her multiple traumatic injuries. Her condition necessitated a swift airlift to Loyola Hospital in Maywood for specialized treatment. Our thoughts are with her for a speedy and complete recovery.

The bus, operated by a 66-year-old driver from Carpentersville, carried 22 passengers at the time of the collision. Both the bus driver and several passengers were taken to local hospitals with minor injuries, underlining the far-reaching effects of this unfortunate event.

Injury Attorneys are available to those affected.
