Based on the initial investigation, the vehicle that the women were riding was traveling at a high speed when it crashed into a cement support column that holds up the elevated Green Line tracks in 4800 block of Lake. The car split into two.
Authorities tried to revive the four by transporting them to Mount Sinai hospital but they were pronounced dead at the hospital.
A mother in another vehicle told the police that they were about to meet the four at a downtown night club when the accident occurred.
The mothers involved in the crash were identified as Tyshyra Hines, 21, Alicia Goston, 22, Bernadette Harris, 25, and Ieshia Nelson, 21, all resident of 1200 block of North Lockwood.
Police did not mention who was driving the car, but relatives of the women believed that Nelson was driving the car when the accident occurred. According to the women’s relatives, the mothers were close friends who all lived in one neighborhood.
The mothers left six innocent children. Authorities were informed that Tyshyra was a single mom to a 4-year-old girl, Harris was a mother of three, Nelson was a mother of a 2-year-old boy, while Goston had a 2-year-old son.
Apparently, over speeding was a main factor in the said mother’s day car accident. A supposed to be an enjoyable mother’s day celebration turned to be a horrific tragedy for the four moms.
In such cases of car accident, chances of recovery seem close to impossible particularly if the investigation found out that the main cause of the accident was over speeding. Even a Los Angeles auto accident attorney can attest to that.
