Two people were hit by a car in unincorporated Lake Villa. The man and woman hit by a car occurred Monday (January 27, 2020) evening.
This accident is discussed in a variety of media sources, including the January 28, 2020 Lake & McHenry County Scanner article titled “Man, woman suffer ‘significant injuries’ after being struck by car in Lake Villa.” An excerpt:
Covelli said that a preliminary investigation shows a 2013 Mercedes-Benz C-300, driven by a 19-year-old Round Lake Park man, was traveling eastbound on Engle Drive near Wildwood Drive.
As the Mercedes-Benz traveled eastbound, the two pedestrians ran from the north side of the roadway and crossed to the other side of the street, directly in front of the Mercedes-Benz, Covelli said. The front of the Mercedes-Benz struck both pedestrians.
The man and woman that were struck were identified only as a 45-year-old man from Lake Villa and a 44-year-old woman from Lake Villa.
As is often the case when people are hit by a car, both of these pedestrians sustained various serious injuries. The woman suffered broken bones, and the man’s injuries were described as a head injury as well as other internal injuries.
This pedestrian accident investigation is being conducted by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit.
