According to police, the driver was charged with driving without a license and was issued other citations. The driver and seven passengers of the vehicle were employed by a Chicago-based temporary employment agency and were en route to a job in the western suburbs when the crash occurred at about 6:15 a.m.

“This is a very tragic accident,” said Robert Briskman, a car accident attorney with Briskman Briskman & Greenberg.
