Wauconda Township Car Crash Critically Injures Driver

A car crash critically injures driver in Wauconda Township on May 31, 2018.  The crash involved a car that left the roadway after an apparent loss of control.

An excerpt regarding the crash, from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office media release of June 1, 2018, titled “Critical Wauconda Township Crash“:

On May 31, 2018, at approximately 11:00PM, Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the area of West Ivanhoe Road and West Brown Road, Wauconda Township, for a traffic crash with injuries.  When Sheriff’s Deputies arrived they located a 2018 Subaru WRX with extensive damage.  The driver of the vehicle, a 51 year-old man of Island Lake, was unconscious and entrapped inside the vehicle.

The man was extricated from the vehicle and taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville for treatment of his accident injuries.  Those injuries were critical injuries and were considered to be life-threatening in nature.

A preliminary investigation indicated that before the crash the driver was heading northbound on West Brown Road.  For a currently undetermined reason, he failed to negotiate a curve, and the car left the roadway and struck a tree.

The accident investigation into this Lake County car accident is being conducted by the
Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit.

Another excerpt from the media release:

Crash investigators are working to determine if speed, alcohol, or illegal substances were contributing factors to the crash.
