Lake County Traffic Accident Involving Mail Truck

There was an accident yesterday (September 19, 2013) north of Barrington, Illinois, and involved a mail truck.

An excerpt from the Crystal Lake article of today, titled “Mailman from Crystal Lake Injured in Traffic Accident on Route 59” :

Lake County Sheriff’s Police said Stephen Bimbi, 44, of the 1700 Block of Kennsington Lane in Crystal Lake, was the man who suffered serious injuries and to be extricated from his mail truck as a result of the crash that occurred at about 10:14 a.m. just south of Route 22.

The accident occurred as Bimbi was driving northbound on Route 59 and he began stopping for a car turning west onto Scott Road. Bimbi lost control of the truck then went into a ditch, striking a tree on the driver’s side, according to reports.

Bimbi was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge.
