Shalom Peters Obituary
According to the news, “Shalom Peters,” 37, perished in an automobile accident in Park Ridge. Shalom Peters was driving an eastbound 2017 Mercedes SUV when, in the 1000 block of Oakton Street, he veered into the westbound lanes at 2:35 in the morning.
His car allegedly crossed the center line on Oakton while speeding, striking two power lines. He died there and then. The North Regional Major Crimes Task Force (NORTAF) Major Crash Assistance Team and the Park Ridge police both responded to the accident scene when it was first reported at 2:38 a.m.
The length of the road’s closure was becoming more and more obvious as the investigation continued. The fact that a nearby power pole was sagging and manifested clear symptoms of significant damage demonstrated the seriousness of the catastrophe. A sizable contingent of ComEd personnel arrived at the location to assess the situation and determine how to resolve it.
