Ford Taurus Accident Granite City, IL

Story of accident: On Thursday, March 1, 2007 myself & my mother was in my parents 1999 Ford Taurus station wagon. I was driving & my mom was in the front passanger

seat. We here heading going westbound on a side street named Victory Drive (a narrow 2 way side street) & was turning southbound on to Nameoki Road (a main road which is 4 lanes, 2 lanes going each way). Victory Drive & Nameoki Road is a "T" intersection which is controlled by stop lights on all 3 ends. I had a green light as I came up to the intersection & slowed down to make my left hand turn to go southbound on Nameoki Road.

As I came in to the intersection a 2005 Isuzu Street Sweeper (not sweeping at the time) broadsided us on the driver's side front, near the tire. According to the eye witnesses that stayed around & spoke to the cops, I had a green light when in the intersection & the street sweeper went right through the red light he had, without even putting on his brakes, until after hitting us.
He pushed us about 25 feet down the road & turned us around 180 degrees to where we where now facing northbound instead of southbound before the street sweeper stopped. I was doing approximately 15 mph at the time of impact & he was doing approximately 45 mph at the time of impact. Both me and my mother recieved some injuries. My head & left shoulder hit the driver side window, causing the window to come out of the track on the door & the rearview mirror came off in the accident & became a projectile, hitting me in the right side of my face, right along with a little doll my mom was holding at the time of the accident. My 2 cigeratte packs flew out of the center console cup holder & was underneath the dash on the passanger side.

It did screw up my back pretty good & I am out of work because of it currently. I also have headaches, right side of my face is hurt & swelled up a little & the my left arm & leg hurts. My mom screw up her back as well, along with bruised her knees & legs pretty well as her seat slid forward in the accident causing her knees & legs to hit the dash & glovebox.

The driver of the street sweeper was issued 2 citations, one for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident and one for failure to obey traffic control signal. The street sweeper only recieved a cracked turn signal lense on the passanger front & a scratched front bumper and was driven away from the scene. Our wagon on the other hand was totalled out & had to be hauled off by a flat bed. The only good news of the accident is that no one was was critically injured or killed, which I feel extremely lucky, considering he hit right on my side & how hard of an impact it was. --- Tim
