On August 15, 2020, at approximately 9:42PM, Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a residence in the 13400 block of Victoria Lane, Beach Park, for a report of an individual armed with a knife, possibly trying to enter a home.
One of the sheriff’s deputies responding to the call was traveling westbound on Wadsworth Road and collided with a southbound Nissan Rouge in the intersection of Wadsworth Road and Green Bay Road, Beach Park. The collision caused the Nissan to strike an eastbound Honda Civic.
The sheriff’s deputy and the driver of the Nissan were transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. The driver and the passenger in the Honda did not appear to have any injuries.
Due to there being injuries in the crash, per protocol, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office requested the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team (MCAT) to respond and conduct an independent investigation.
The investigation remains ongoing by MCAT.
