You would have to give more information here.  What were the exact circumstances of the accident?  Were liquor or drugs involved?  Did someone suffer an injury? Do you have any prior driving offenses?

Know this, in Illinois having a CDL holds you to a higher standard.  For a DUI, for example, CDL holders face even stiffer penalties
