Long Grove Minivan Crash Along Route 22 Critically Injures Driver

There was a Long Grove minivan crash Sunday (October 13, 2019) morning in which the driver was critically injured. This Long Grove minivan crash happened along eastbound Route 22.

The crash is discussed in various media sources, including the October 13, 2019 Lake County Sheriff’s Office media release titled “Man in Critical Condition Following Long Grove Crash.”

An excerpt from that media release:

On October 13, 2019, at approximately 9:10AM, Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the area of Route 22 and Miranda Lane, Long Grove, for a traffic crash with injuries.  Sheriff’s Deputies arrived and found the driver of a 2007 Toyota Sienna, a 63-year-old male of Unincorporated Deerfield, unresponsive.  Sheriff’s Deputies initiated life-saving efforts on the man until relieved by Long Grove Fire Protection District Paramedics.  

Preliminary investigation shows the Toyota was traveling eastbound on Route 22 at a slow rate of speed.  For an unknown reason the driver veered across the westbound lanes, into the ditch, and struck several trees.  

The driver was taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville for treatment of his accident injuries. He was in critical condition.

The driver was the sole occupant of the vehicle at the time of this Long Grove minivan crash.

The accident investigation is being conducted by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit. The cause of the crash has yet to be determined.

Additional details and possible updates can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the media release mentioned above.

For many reasons, accidents involving vehicles leaving the roadway often lead to serious accident injuries. After leaving the roadway, vehicles are vulnerable to hitting various fixed objects, including trees, utility poles, and ditches.
