Lake County, Illinois Vehicle Accidents March 13-14, 2017

During Monday and Tuesday (March 13-14, 2017) there were numerous Lake County (Illinois) car crashes and other vehicle accidents.  Additionally, there were many stalled vehicles.

Many factors made for slick and “icy” roadway conditions.  Two late-season snowstorms, as well as colder temperatures, contributed to many roads being “slick” as well as other hazardous road conditions.  It appears as if the number of crashes on each day was far above normal.

This snowfall, combined with temperatures in the single digits, contributed to the slick conditions which led to many car accidents.

A review of Lake County crash data shows accidents that are distributed throughout the county.

Among the locations of crashes included:

  • Route 53 in Long Grove
  • US 41 in Gurnee
  • US Highway 12 in Volo
