A Lake Villa crash occurred on Tuesday (April 9, 2019) afternoon, which involved a “head-on collision.” The collision occurred at Route 83 and Townline Road, just to the south of Grass Lake Road. This Lake Villa crash resulted in one driver being injured with what were considered life-threatening injuries, and another driver also being injured and taken to the hospital.

The crash involved a pickup truck and a SUV. First responders began to go to the accident scene at approximately 12:48 p.m.

Details on the accident can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the April 9, 2019 Lake County News-Sun article titled “One seriously injured in Lake Villa head-on crash.”

An excerpt from the article:

Witnesses told investigators with the Lake Villa Police Department and the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team that the pickup was northbound and weaving when it ran into the southbound lane and stuck the SUV causing it to roll onto its side, according to a police statement.

The pickup truck driver sustained the life-threatening injuries. The driver of the SUV was also taken to the hospital for treatment of accident injuries.

On this site, a discussion of various aspects of “head-on collisions” – including those that have occurred in Lake County and the severity of accident injuries that typically occurring in such crashes – can be seen on the “Accidents Involving ‘Head-On Collisions’” page. As can be seen on that page, these types of crashes can occur for a number of reasons. While some crashes occur when a driver crosses the center line and goes into opposing traffic, other such frontal collisions occur after a driver has been driving in the wrong direction, i.e. is a “wrong-way driver.”
