On September 7, 2022, at approximately 6:55 p.m., Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to Route 60 in the area of Wilson Road, near Volo, for a traffic crash with injuries. Sheriff’s deputies arrived and initially located a 44-year-old woman of Volo lying in the roadway, on Route 60.
Preliminary investigation shows a 2015 Hyundai Accent, driven by the Volo woman, was traveling westbound on Route 60. For an unknown reason, the driver of the Hyundai struck a guard rail on the north side of the roadway. This caused the Hyundai to then enter the eastbound lanes of traffic and strike a 2018 Subaru Outback, driven by a 68-year-old woman of Wonder Lake.
Traffic crash investigators are working to determine if the driver of the Hyundai was ejected from her vehicle, or exited her vehicle and collapsed following the crash. The driver of the Hyundai was transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with critical, life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Subaru was treated by paramedics at the scene and released. A passenger in the Subaru, an 18-year-old of Woodstock, was also treated by paramedics at the scene and released.
The crash remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit.
