[ARCHIVED] Beach Park Critical Traffic Crash

On September 10, 2018, at approximately 7:15AM, Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a traffic crash with injuries in the area of Sheridan Road and Beach Road, Beach Park.  Sheriff’s Deputies arrived and located a single-vehicle crash.  The driver of the vehicle was seriously injured.  

Preliminary investigation shows a 2014 Jeep Patriot, driven by a 45-year-old woman of Waukegan, was traveling southbound on Sheridan Road, just north of Beach Road.  As the driver approached Beach Road, for an unknown reason, she left the roadway (on the west side of the road).  The Jeep struck the curb, light-standard control box, and a brick wall.  The Jeep then rolled.  

The driver of the vehicle was extricated from the Jeep by Beach Park Fire/Rescue and transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with life-threatening injuries.  

The crash remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit.
