Many Illinois residents may have heard the old saying that lightening never strikes the same place twice. Like other highly improbable events, it is hard to believe that accidents and other such chance occurrences can happen and affect the same people more than once. One Illinois family may be starting to believe that accidents, like lightening, do not always follow commonly held beliefs.
A 29-year-old Illinois woman was recently killed when her sport utility vehicle crashed with a semi truck. What makes the circumstances of her accident tragically unique is that her twin sister was killed in a vehicle accident merely 500 yards away from where the SUV driver lost her life.
