Fatal 3-Vehicle Accident In Wauconda, Illinois Leaves One Man Dead, Three Injured

This morning, one person was killed and three injured during a multi-vehicle accident in Wauconda, Illinois.

Details concerning the accident are still somewhat limited.

The accident happened at approximately 6:30 a.m. when a white sedan was heading north on Route 12.  As the driver attempted to make a left turn onto Case Road, it was “t-boned” (i.e. hit) by a pickup truck, according to police.  The car was then again hit by another truck, and the impact of the collision spun the car onto the median.

A passenger in the car, identified as Sergio Garcia-Vazquez, 38, of Wauconda, was ejected and killed; at least three other people were injured.

The accident remains under investigation.
