5-year-old boy hit and killed by car in Palatine

A tragic accident happened in Palatine, Illinois, on June 1. A young boy, who had autism, was walking along near the edge of Palatine Road, and he was all by himself. After going for some distance, he stepped out into the lanes and was hit by a car.

The car had just come onto Palatine Road, turning from Winston Drive and heading east. It was a 2006 Hyundai Sedan that was being driven by a 53-year-old man from Bartlett. The crash happened right around 4:15 p.m.

The boy was rushed to Northwest Community Hospital by the first responders to the scene. However, he was then quickly airlifted over to Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital when it was discovered that his injuries were life-threatening. He survived there until early Tuesday morning, but he passed away at 1:38 a.m.

The police have not handed out any tickets or citations at this time, but they are still piecing things together to determine exactly what happened. A Serious Traffic Accident Reconstruction Team -- also known as a STAR Team -- has been called in for this job. The police commander also noted that they were interviewing people about the case.

One question that the police have is why the boy was alone by the road in the first place, but they do not yet know how that played out.

The loss of a loved one can be very painful, and no financial compensation will take that away, but it is still good for those who have suffered such a loss to know if they have a right to compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses and more.
